Robert Montgomery is the associate publisher of Dazed & Confused, but our art focus on him today is because of his practice of the Situationist tradition of detournement, which he interprets by replacing advertisements, often times illicitly, with his own poetry. Sounds like on the surface, a more intellectual form of street art doesn’t it? Besides this particular method of expression (which you can see examples of after the jump), he is also known for creating a series “recycled sunlight” pieces that combines solar cells and neon lights into a kind of poetic sculpture.

For those in Istanbul, you can see one of his works traveling around the city as part of the 12th Istanbul Biennial. More of his work after the jump…
