Robert Montgomery’s Inspiring Word Works

Robert describes himself as working within "a poetic and melancholic post-situationist tradition" and his billboard-style art often "hijacks" advertising space in the city to highlight the absurdity and complexity of modern life. He also made a series of “hijacked” neon signs and created desert sculptures using solar cells. “They are intended to be encountered by commuters who don’t know they are art and an attempt to describe in public space what it feels like to live now.”
