George Vidas is an artist and neon bender best known for his artisanal sign shop, Signifier Signs. Born in North Carolina (1987), he spent a decade on the Oregon coast before moving to upstate New York. In New York, he learned how to make neon while earning a B.F.A. at Alfred University. Shortly before graduating, he bought a shop’s worth of used neon equipment and has spent the intervening years practicing the craft.
