Richard William Wheater talks neon art on BBC Radio Four's Front Row

January 4, 2012 by Kay

Neon artist Richard William Wheater helps Radio Four's John Wilson make a neon for the first  Front Row artwork. Wheater talks us through the process of making neon artwork at Neon Workshops in Wakefield, the only place in the country you can learn how to make neons. They are accompanied by graphic designer Peter Saville and the Junior Royal Northern College Brass Quintet and the BBC North Staff Choir to switch on the artwork.

Wheater's unique neon installation I'm Electric, You're Electric is currently at Other Criteria's Hinde Street shop. To view the work online, click here.

Listen to this episode of Front Row on BBC iPlayer here. If you want to go straight to this section of Front Row, skip forward to the time 17.33.

BBC Radio Four John Wilson creates a neon sign 'Listen' for the first Front Row artwork with help from neon artist Richard William Wheater
