Bob and Roberta Smith is the pseudonym of the British artist whose best-known works include Make Art Not War (Tate), and Letter to Michael Gove, which reprimanded the UK Secretary of State for Education for the destruction of Britains ability to draw, design and sing. Smith uses text as an art form, creating colourful slogans on banners and placards that challenge elitism and advocate the importance of creativity in politics and education. In 2009 he was appointed a Tate Trustee and he is currently Associate Professor at the Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design at London Metropolitan University.

I love Bob and Roberta RA’s work and I’m delighted with my print of “All schools should be art schools”. Its print and paper quality is excellent.
