Bob and Roberta Smith, Look After My Cat, 2001(185 views)
Description: Patrick Brill, better known by his pseudonum Bob and Roberta Smith, is a British artist, b. 1963. Bob and Roberta Smith see art as an important element in democratic life. Much of his art takes the form of painted signs. Central to Bob and Roberta Smith's thinking is the idea that campaigns are extended art works which include a variety of consciousness raising artefacts. And so he is known for his "slogan art", text and phrase based, and usually laced with social or cultural commentary. He paints slogans in a brightly colored lettering style on banners and discarded boards of wood and exhibits them in galleries of contemporary art across the world. The slogans are usually humorous musing on art, politics, popular culture, Britain and the world in general; and they often support his activist campaigns. This painting is called, "Look After My Cat" from 2001. It is 14 x 11 inches; and is signed on the reverse. Bob and Roberta Smith works have been exhibited widely, and are in collections in Europe and the United States.
