Neon Road: The Art of Todd Sanders
Pages: 80; 9" x 9" hardcover
Todd Sanders' neon contemporary art evokes a time when America fell in love with the road trip. We hopped in the family wagon to explore the nation, lured to motels, diners, and curious roadside attractions by the colorful glow of neon. The sign masters who crafted those slices of Americana are Sanders' heroes, and he's built a career designing and creating original, entirely handmade neon works using their time-honored techniques. He calls his style modern vintage, and shares a rich artistic vein mined by fellow pop artist Andy Warhol and other pop-culture iconographers .A Montgomery, TX native who began pursuing his muse in earnest after moving to Austin, Sanders' work is prized by collectors. Clients include Willie Nelson, Shepard Fairey, Joe Rogan, Kacey Musgraves, Edie Brickell/ Paul Simon, Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top) and The Kings of Leon.
