We have a wide range of typographic art at Rise - why not start by taking a look at the work of Rebecca Mason whose combination of text with neon light conveys the darker side of human existence and emotion. Mason effectively draws upon the connotations of neon light in order to make bold statements on life, love, money and culture.
Also not to be missed is the work of Ursula Hitz who cleverly crafts mesmerising maps out of the names of the locations depicted. Her captivating works can be seen as abstract textures, locations, or simply as a series of words and offer an innovative and creative take on the traditional map format.
Don’t miss the work of the Dangerous Minds Artists whose pieces explore themes of light, beauty in decay and abandonment while making use of antiquated typography. Their clever juxtaposition of vintage elements combined with modern neon lighting makes for exceptionally striking pieces which are sure to add an impact to any setting.
