Here's a bright idea: why not fill Soho with a load of positive neon art for an upbeat end to what's been, let's face it, a pretty shit year?
That's exactly what the folks at Lights of Soho have done. For the third consecutive year, God's Own Junkyard has installed an exhibition of its work outside of its usual Walthamstow home inside the gallery-come-members club on Brewer Street.
Called 'Always Look on the Bright Side of Life', the neon signs included in this year's exhibition all reflect the more fun, carefree side of things following a catastrophic 2016. It contains work from several generations of the Bracey family, who are often praised as the people responsible for transforming Soho into the bright cultural district we know today with their distinctive neon work.
Although hundreds of pieces are filling Lights of Soho, there are a some that stand out – so here are a few of our favourites.
