Guest Artist: God’s Own Junkyard
The Other Art Fair is proud to present the Guest Artist for this edition: Gods Own Junkyard.
Celebrating an impressive 70 years of creativity, with a portfolio that includes Louis Vuitton, Stella McCartney, Selfridges, Miu Miu, Burberry, Mulberry, Alexander McQueen and more, God’s Own Junkyard will unveil an immersive installation at the fair that showcases iconic pieces from the last seven decades. Visitors will have the unique opportunity to pre-book photography portrait sessions within a one-of-a-kind God’s Own Junkyard 70’s Soho set, masterfully captured by renowned photographer David Ellis. For collectors and enthusiasts, the fair also presents a rare opportunity to purchase neon works directly from God’s Own Junkyard.
Flashback to Soho: David Ellis x Gods Own Junkyard
Dive into a mesmerizing journey back in time as we bring the electrifying spirit of 1970s Soho to life through the lens of renowned photographer David Ellis. Step into a world of neon, nightlife, and nostalgia at this exclusive pop-up studio.
For this pop up studio, Gods Own Junkyard will create a 1970s-inspired install that will take visitors back to Soho, where much of their work first blazed out onto London’s streets. Famed for their neon cheeky Girls Girls Girls artworks and signs for many iconic venues, Gods Own Junkyard was responsible for the neon glow that Soho is famed for today. The introduction of neon signage in Soho in the 1970s transformed the area by infusing it with a distinctive visual identity, boosting its nightlife and creative scene. These neon signs became emblematic of Soho’s vibrant and eclectic character during that era.
Renowned Photographer David Ellis
David’s portfolio is a treasure trove of memorable moments. From constructing an “ice universe” for Justin Timberlake’s photoshoot to being the last photographer to capture Amy Winehouse before her untimely passing, his work reflects a unique blend of creativity and connection. David’s lens has captured legendary figures and worked with major brands. From Sir David Attenborough to Cristiano Ronaldo, and from Adidas to Netflix, his visual storytelling has transcended boundaries.
A Pop-Up Studio Like No Other
This October, David Ellis joins forces with Gods Own Junkyard, the iconic neon brand celebrating its 70th year. At The Other Art Fair at Truman Brewery, visitors have a unique opportunity to step into David’s lens and become part of a magazine-style art piece. Don your best 70’s garm’s as you step back in time to relive the glamour, creativity, and freedom of this unforgettable era.

This Octobers edition brings Charity Water and The Other Art Fair together to celebrate an incredible roster of artists to transform their iconic Jerry Can into works of art. A group of 13 renowned artists, including the impressive Ben Eine, made famous by his street art Alphabet and work presented to Obama, the experiential and interactive installation architect Jeppe Hein and anti-disciplinary artist, activist, and keynote speaker Adah Parris have been inspired by the charity’s powerful brand icon – the humble jerry can. Seen to many as a petrol can, the jerry can is an essential tool for 703 million people who have to walk long distances to collect dirty water for their families. In an act of homage to this simple but powerful tool, the artists have created a special piece of work which is on display at The Other Art Fair from 12-15th October at the Truman Brewery, London. Each artwork is up for sale by auction and 100% of every penny donated will fund clean water projects. Additionally, visitors can support the cause by purchasing a limited edition print exclusive to The Other Art Fair.
