Bob & Roberta Smith:

Bob and Roberta Smith (b.1963, London) lives and works in London. Studied at University of Reading (1981-1985) and Goldsmiths College of Art (1991-1993). 'Bob and Roberta Smith' is the pseudonym used by conceptual artist Patrick Brill. Patrick is a Tate trustee and active artist spokesperson for arts and culture. The artist has become best known for brightly coloured slogans, painted on reclaimed timber or board. Each carries a witty or subversive message, questioning the worlds of art, politics and popular culture. As well as sign painting, he also makes sculptures in cement, performs music with 'The Ken Ardley Playboys', and hosts the radio show 'Make Your Own Damn Music' on Resonance fm. Select group shows include Tate Britain, London; Hayward Gallery, London; Serpentine Gallery, London; Tate Liverpool; CCAC, San Francisco; National Gallery, Copenhagen, Denmark; and CIMA Gallery, Calcutta. His work is held in public and private collections including the Tate Collection, UK Arts Council Collection and UK British Council Collection.
