Cheeky Neon Sign Art by Patrick Martinez

If you’re like us, you barely even notice those neon signs anymore, no matter how brightly they flash. After all, we already know what they say: “Girls Girls Girls” or “Open” or “Drink Budweiser.” But LA-based artist Patrick Martinez, whose work we recently spotted over at Booooooom, has something completely different to say. Martinez uses the medium to comment on the world around him, whether turning his cheeky, incendiary statements into lime green beacons or incorporating paint for a subtler message. Click through to see a few of our favorites from Martinez’s portfolio, and then be sure to head on over to his website to check out the rest.
