Love is a screenprint by the artist known as Bob and Roberta Smith. It celebrates the Paralympic athletes who competed at the London 2012 Games. The artist was invited to make the work by the London Organising Committee of the Games.
Bob and Roberta Smith is the fictional name of the artist Patrick Brill OBE. He was born in Reading and studied at Goldsmiths, University of London. He lives in Leytonstone and Margate. Brill created the fictional duo Bob and Roberta Smith as a playful reaction to the British media’s obsession with art celebrities in the 1990s. He champions art education in schools through painting, printmaking, film and performance. Works include All Schools Should Be Art Schools (2016, Tate Gallery) and Make Art Not War, a 2018 project with sixth-form students.
