Bob and Roberta Smith and Mark Titchner Create Artworks for Campaign Against Cuts


LONDON.- A new work by British artist, Bob and Roberta Smith created specially for the campaign supported by over 100 leading British artists against the government’s proposed funding cuts of the arts is released today. Artist Patrick Brill better known as Bob and Roberta Smith, currently lives and works in London. He is known for artwork that incorporates text – often commenting on art, politics, or popular culture — in his unique, brightly colored lettering style on banners and discarded boards of wood. He became a Tate Trustee in 2009. Two challenging new works by artist Mark Titchner are also unveiled today across two UK cities as part of the campaign. The Turner Prize nominated artist’s work uses direct language in strong political graphic forms. His lead artwork demands ‘DON’T LET THEM DESTROY ANOTHER BRITISH INDUSTRY!’ tying the debate on cuts to the arts to other vital large-scale industries currently and previously under threat.
