Bob and Roberta Smith has worked in a variety of media including painting, performance, sculpture, film and installation. He is known for employing DIY methods – including painting on pieces of scrap wood – and a number of influences from punk to folk in order to personalise political sloganeering. Using humour as a tactic, his work often challenges respected authorities.
