ROBERT MONTGOMERY (UK)

Robert Montgomery has been called a vandal, a street artist, a post-Situationist, a punk artist and the 'poets Banksy'. He follows a tradition of conceptual art and is noticeable for bringing a poetic voice to the discourse of text art. Poetic texts form the basis of his billboard pieces, light pieces (recycled sunlight poems), woodcuts and watercolours.

Montgomery showed at the 2011 Venice Biennale and was selected to represent the UK at the first biennale in India - The Kochi-Muziris Biennale - in December 2012. He has also had solo exhibitions at venues in Europe and in Asia, including major outdoor light installations on the site of the old US Air Force base at Tempelhof. The first monograph of his work was published by Distanz, Berlin in 2015.

Originally from Scotland, Montgomery studied at Edinburgh College of Art and then in the core program at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. He has lived in London since 1999.
