"After our exhibition in Europe, Fast Life is back in Australia for your viewing pleasure.”
Fast Life is a collaboration between graphic designer Jakub Pramuk and product designer Leonard Velich. The project started about two years ago when they combined a graphic drawing, a functional product and the old craft of neon sign making to create a unique combination of art, light and function. The goal was to create handcrafted art objects that are not only visual pieces but also functional lighting products.
Even though Fast Life is mostly about art and design it also represents a lifestyle that most of us can relate to at some point of our lives. A life on the edge. The story behind every design reflects this philosophy of "fast life“ where the influences come from various walks of life and where living on the edge is the norm.
Combination of this way of life and the neon culture that is specific to a lot of major cities around the world pays homage to this popular but dying craft. Unfortunately, only a small handful of neon sign workshops remain to maintain this craft that once animated the cityscape.
