Robert Montgomery is a Scottish-born, London-based poet, artist and sculptor known for his site-specific installations created from light and text, as well as his 'fire poems'. Montgomery works in a "melancholic post-Situationist" tradition, primarily in public spaces. He is regarded as a leading figure in the conceptual art world.
"The point of art, is to touch the hearts of strangers, without the trouble of ever having to meet them. But, if you can touch their hearts from a distance and help a little bit from your quiet studio then it's very nice.”
This season, Montgomery represents the John Smedley brand, and stars in their AW18 campaign alongside his wife, poet Greta Bellamacina. The two will unveil their bespoke artworks inspired by the John Smedley collections, exclusively as part of London Craft Week.
