London is well-known for its winter cheer, adorned with lights strung over high streets and wrapped around nearly every corner. The magic of the season is truly illuminated by the fantastic decorations of the city. Winter becomes much more cheerful in a place like this.
Regent Street Winter Light Display
This year, The Southbank Centre has added to the collection of London’s illuminating displays with their Winter Light outdoor exhibition. With their own artistic twist on the seasonal decor, the Centre is displaying new works from a series of contemporary artists. These artists include Leo Villareal, Marinella Senatore, Tim Etchells, Kendall Geers, Oasis Academy Johanna, and Squire & Partners.
These artists are all experienced in visual arts and have used their experience to create magical new displays. Marinella Senatore, for example, has an expansive portfolio of beautifully intricate neon sculptures. Her work has been featured across the globe in places like the High Line in New York, Florence’s Palazzo Strozzi, and now London’s very own Southbank Centre.
