Global home & decor brand, Yellowpop, has revealed an exclusive neon collaboration with cult favourite visual artist & photographer, Sarah Bahbah. Inspired by an amalgamation of Sarah’s iconic photo series, the limited-edition neon collection encapsulates four subtitles that depict a range of internal emotions and state of beings.

Following her big breakthrough in 2014 from the exhibition of her ‘Sex and Takeout’ series, Bahbah has since developed a huge fanbase and brand partners, notably Gucci and Topshop. Sarah’s goal with her partnership with Yellowpop is to bring her subtitles to life so that her collectors can experience the words that depict the emotions of her work in a new, creative way.

“It was exciting bringing my subtitles to life in a new form. I think the intimacy of the inner dialogue translates really effectively in neon – a new kind of storytelling for me in the absence of the cinematic stills – but as always fiercely true to the ebb and flow of human emotion.”

Their recent collaborators include fashion & culture commentator, Diet Prada, Swedish-French graffiti artist, André Saraiva, and famous New York tattoo artist, Girl Knew York. 

“When looking for artists to collaborate with, we always seek for individuals with a unique voice – and Sarah Bahbah definitely fits into that category. We’re huge fans of her work and are very proud of this partnership”, 

says Yellowpop co-founders Jeremy Cortial and Ruben Grigri.
