Nightclubs, beer signs, strip clubs are all things that are conjured up when you look at Washington-born artist Dan Attoe's neon sculptures. More of by-product of his paintings, Attoe's bold and graphic works incorporate existential thoughts with images of spread-legged women, bearded Jesus's, drug dealing crows and more. According to Attoe, the neon 'drawings' as he calls them are often a precursor to a more polished and realised final painted product.

He describes them best himself in an interview he did with art and design blog fARTiculate -  "They’re sort of like little demons that poke at the refined drawings, making fun of them, and pointing out the simultaneous futility that comes with being so careful and thoughtful. In many ways these thoughts are just as important as the complex and precious ones."
