Bob & Roberta Smith, pseudonym of Patrick Brill, is a British contemporary artist, writer, author, musician, art education advocate and keynote speaker. He is known for his brightly coloured activist slogans, painted on banners and discarded boards of wood. Usually humorous, the slogans act as musings on art, politics and popular culture.
