Carla O’Brien first shot to fame when her Neon Angel Wings were ‘worn’ by Katy Perry at Burning Man in 2016. Since then, she has become Victoria’s most prolific neon artist with over 2.5 million people witnessing or interacting with her iconic art at festivals and events across the country.
Back in 2017, QV hosted Carla O’Brien’s first-ever solo exhibition and is now thrilled to welcome her back to exhibit a range of new works, including her biggest piece ever created: a giant rainbow-coloured, three-metre long Neon Archway. And who doesn’t love a giant neon archway? People who don’t like fun, that’s who.
Carla is also creating Happy Space, an immersive neon art room in QV Square, with a candy wall (yes please), inspirational messaging and plenty of interactive Instagrammable moments.
And if you’d like to meet the brains behind this neon operation, Carla herself will host a select number of visitors inside Happy Space at 6 pm Thursday 29 August and 6 pm Friday 6 September for a special ‘meet the artist’ introduction. Don’t miss it.
