Inspirational Picspam: God’s Own Junkyard, Festival of Love

Ah, love. That unusual feeling in your tummy that might just be undercooked pizza. Love is what brings us together and helps us put up with each other. Love is something that can be difficult to put into words – which is why, sometimes, we put it into neon instead.

Chris Bracey, from super popular neon emporium God’s Own Junkyard (which we Zombies LOVE, by the way) has brought some of his colourful creations into the Southbank Centre for this year’s Festival of Love. The exhibition’s called ‘Love and Liquid Fire‘, and includes the odd bit of metalwork dotted around on the floor.
