Tony Spink, owner of Bolton based neon sign studio Neon Creations, is realising a dream as he announces that his work will be displayed in an exhibition at Manchester’s Artzu Gallery.
The company which was established in 2005 specialises in the design and manufacture of custom made neon signs and lights. They produce mainly one-off custom designs for a client base which ranges from retail, leisure, music, design/ad agencies, events and domestic clients. Well-known clients include Peter Crouch and Abbey Clancy, singer Lucy Spraggan, dirty food pioneers Solita and Missguided.
Tony has created 20 bespoke pieces some of which will be exhibited alongside acrylic and resin based art by Stephen Farley in the city centre exhibition which will open on Wednesday 8 November and run for two weeks.
“I have been wanting to do my own thing again and create my own designs rather than always be working to a brief from clients. So again - I did.
I set aside a day a week to work on my own pieces. I have been looking for a platform to show off my work and by chance met Charles Blair from Artzu and the opportunity arose!”
Tony’s pieces will be available for sale priced from £1k upwards. The exhibition will launch with a VIP evening on Wednesday 8 November
