    The artists’ first collaboration was at the exhibition 'Liverpool Love'. They put a neon frame around a Teletubbies inspired painting of the Beatles Furr had done; making it a neo-shrine to the Beatles.liverpoollove.org/chris-bracey-christian-furr/

    ‘STAYING ALIVE’
    CHRIS BRACEY & CHRISTIAN FURR
    A neon exhibition of Art, Rock and Poetry, inspired by Einstein, Edison and Essex

    British artists, Chris Bracey and Christian Furr explore the theme of 'Staying Alive' in reclaimed, neon objects in their new exhibition that launches Thursday 4th July.

    Hosted at Dorchester Collection’s contemporary Mayfair hotel, 45 Park Lane, the inspiration of the Staying Alive exhibition stems from Rock and Poetry inspired by Einstein, Edison and Essex.

    The two artists first joined forces in 2012 when the artists designed and added, a signature neon frame to a Furr painting of the Beatles, making the artwork a modern shrine to the Beatles. It was then that they decided to collaborate on show together and ‘Staying Alive’ was born.

    Collectively, those who own pieces of their works include, Queen Elizabeth II, Dan Hawley, Sadie Frost, Jude Law, Tarrie Lister Havlin, David LaChapelle, Stella McCartney, Martin Creed, Michael Caine, Jerry Hall, Vic Reeves and Vivienne Westwood.
    Chris Bracey has been the ‘Neon Man’ for 37 years creating iconic art pieces for everyone from David LaChapelle to Martin Creed. Chris has made, installed and collected signs that have appeared behind some of the greatest stars including Tom Cruise in Eyes Wide Shut, Johnny Depp in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Jack Nicholson in Batman. Chris salvages old neons and architectural advertising from the streets before they disappear forever.

    Christian Furr became the youngest artist to have ever officially painted Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II, at the age of twenty-eight. The painting was commissioned by the Royal Overseas League, St James’s London. He has curated Art exhibitions at the Saatchi gallery and the £72m Museum of Liverpool. His works hang in the permanent collection of 45 Park Lane, Dorchester Collection with Sir Peter Blake and Damien Hirst.

    On the present cultural relevance of the exhibition, Christian Furr, says 'In these tough economic times it forces people to replace complacency with innovation. Recession gives birth to new ideas, new collaborations and cross fertilization. Its all about keeping your head above water; 'Staying Alive'.

    Great art stays alive in future generations. A great idea regenerates. It stays alive. We’ve always liked the Bee Gees. I like disco too. It's 'feel good' music. If it’s good enough for music it's good enough for art.’

    Key works include an homage to rock legends, The Beatles "All You Need Is Love", The Rolling Stones with 'Its Good To Be Here" and the Bee Gees, namesakes of their exhibition, "Staying Alive”.

  2. Staying Alive
    Painted coffin, clown automaton
    Murano neon glass
    By Chris Bracey & Christian Furr

    ‘Isn't all Art trying to bring something back to life or is the life in the Art itself? Great Art stays alive in future generations. A great idea re - generates. It stays alive.’
    Mexico celebrates death in a joyous way. Fairgrounds remind us of death and joy. They are about extraordinary thrills and closeness of expiry. ‘Like all funerals we wanted this to be moving. A studio 54 sendoff. But death is rebirth’ In the future they can experience over and over again the movements of a world they thought they had lost. A mechanical marvel. Something pretending to be human about Art living forever and built by dreamers. A most unusual fusion of humanity and technology inspired by the Bee Gees.
