Rolling Scones Café at God's Own Junkyard (Press Release)

Press Release

Random. Surprising. Mind-blowing. Completely wow. These are some of the words used in the visitors’ book of God’s Own Junkyard to describe the neon Walthamstow wonderland.

The gone-but-not-forgotten neon artist, Chris Bracey used to describe the place as ‘what the inside of [his] brain looks like’, a sort of giant mess of his prestige artworks, film props and the Gods Own Junkyard studio range. Many of the works reference popular culture and iconic imagery from the streets of Soho of the 1970s, thus featuring the tattoo culture, more than one evocative statement, and a big bundle of reflective texts. The pieces, which include some of Chris’s previous works in film and fashion, range from original illuminated sculptures, to salvaged signs, vintage signage and retrospective display artworks. The warmth felt inside the unit comes as much from the neon as it comes from the Bracey’s.
