TEXT ART | PAINTING | LIGHT ART | PUBLIC ART

Robert Montgomery is a globally recognised and highly regarded artist, following a tradition of conceptual art and standing out by bringing a poetic voice to the discourse of text art. Robert is represented by MTArt Agency. His work “The People You Love Become Ghosts Inside of You ” took the internet by storm, being shared more than 20 million times.

Montgomery creates billboard poems, light pieces, fire poems, woodcuts and watercolours. He was the British artist selected for Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2012, the first biennale in India. Montgomery has had solo exhibitions at venues in Europe and in Asia, including major outdoor light installations on the site of the old US Air Force base at Tempelhof. The first monograph of his work was published by Distanz, Berlin in 2015. Along with the architects, Allied Works was a shortlisted finalist for the UK National Holocaust Memorial in 2017 with the project exhibited at the V&A Museum in London.
