We are delighted to announce our collaboration with Robert Montgomery, one of the most exceptional figures in the art world of our time, by displaying some of his works under the category Art Room.
Born in 1972, Robert Montgomery is a poet, artist and sculpture based in London. He studied at Edinburgh College of Art in Scotland and then in the core program at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas in the U.S. Montgomery works in a “melancholic post-situationist” tradition, creating installations primarily in public spaces. He is regarded as a leading figure in the conceptual art world due to his billboard and fire poems, light pieces, woodcuts and watercolors. He has presented many solo exhibitions in various places around the world such as in Nicosia, Cyprus for the Office Gallery, in New York for the C24 Gallery and in Istanbul for Istanbul 74. He has also participated in several art festivals and venues such us the Athens & Epidaurus Festival in Greece, the Edinburgh Art Festival in Scotland and the Kochi-Muziris Biennale in India. Montgomery’s work goes beyond art fairs and gallery exhibitions: as such, he lately participated in the presentation of Valentino’s Romantic Fall Collection 2019 where his works where incorporated in haute couture.
