Neon Art That Speaks to the Heart

For anyone who's ever experienced the highs and lows of being in love,
you'll appreciate these
neon sculptures by Olivia Steele. The London and
Berlin-based artist creates intimate statements
that evoke an emotional
response. For last year's Frieze Art Fair, she placed her neon signs in
spaces all around London in an exhibition she appropriately
called Public Displays of Affection.
As she writes on her website, "From
an East London lingerie shop to a historical religious landmark,
the Mile End foot bridge and above ordinarily dingy public toilets, her
artworks have become
beacons spanning the city – a yellow brick road of
illuminating lyrical sculpture."
