About the Edition
Bob and Roberta Smith use the immediacy of language to create hand-painted signs on pieces of found wood. These signs - painted in the style of community action banners, street signs, and fun fair posters - relay direct and often humorous messages. Taking the values of the Paralympic Games as a starting point, Bob and Roberta Smith propose the core elements of the athlete experience: courage, inspiration, love, and of course sweat.
About the Artist
Bob and Roberta Smith believe that art plays a powerful role in democratic systems, both as a forum for free speech and as a workshop to explore new futures. Best known for his sign paintings, Bob and Roberta Smith's text-based work is inspired by the idea of 'green-ink letters' and explores the relationship between art, politics, society, and humour. Bob and Roberta Smith signwrite their tongue-in-cheek ideas on pieces of old timber, cardboard, and canvas with a distinctive DIY approach which appropriates the languages of folk and punk to personalise political sloganeering. Humorous and often absurd, Bob and Roberta Smith explore their central belief that, ‘people have culture, they don’t need artists to make culture for them. People should make their own damn art.’

Bob and Roberta Smith were born in 1963 in London, and live and work in London.
