Neon artist Todd Sanders crafts his vintage-style designs using durable modern materials and specialized weathering techniques.
Todd Sanders’ neon art evokes a time when Americans found adventure simply by following the glow of gas-filled tubes beckoning toward fanciful roadside attractions. He fell in love with those slices of mid-century Americana, and has built a career designing and crafting original, entirely handmade neon works with the same time-honored techniques as those master signmakers.
He calls his style modern vintage, but considers himself a pop artist, sharing an artistic vein mined by Andy Warhol and similar creative talents. A Houston native who began pursuing his muse in earnest after moving to Austin, Sanders’ work is prized by collectors including Willie Nelson, Shepard Fairey, Norah Jones, Kacey Musgraves and Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top).
