Neon art is essentially a subgenre of light art. It is a form of art that relies on neon lights as a medium for its effects and to create artworks that appeal to the audience. Neon artists usually incorporate the elements of interactivity and movements (as with kinetic art) to generate visually-stimulating pieces of beautiful work.
As an art form, neon art is a fairly new and emerging style, although it has experienced a lot of interest in the last half-century. Some of the genre’s best-known artists include Mario Merz, Bruce Nauman, Dan Flavin, and Tracey Emin.
