The feminine and sensual neon art by Teresa Escobar

-

There is undoubtedly something fascinating about neon lights, an object that has recently turned 100 years old and is enjoying enormous success. This is partly due to the fact that unlike a few decades ago, when it was possible to see these types of lights on the street used as signs for businesses, bars and cinemas, today neon light creations have become home decorations, which can be customised as desired.
This has also led to a change in the production process, with young artisans and artists learning how to work with glass to create the classic tubes that are then illuminated by coloured lights. Among these is Teresa Escobar, a young neon artist whose creations touch on delicate themes linked to the female universe. 

Born in Mexico, after studying Marketing and Advertising in Veracruz, in 2012 Teresa Escobar moved to New York where, a few years later, she discovered neon art thanks to a workshop at Brooklyn Glass.
Since then, Teresa has never stopped trying, experimenting and practicing, and has begun to develop her own style and create works that follow a specific theme.

Exploiting the sexy and bewitching side of neon, Teresa Escobar began to work with glass, creating different breast silhouettes, illuminated by different shades, to tell how every woman is different and therefore unique, underlining the beauty of this characteristic. 

But Teresa’s production does not end here, in fact, the artist also tries her hand at other creations ranging from writing to sunsets or roses that are often not hung on a wall, but installed outdoors, becoming part of the landscape.
