London 2012 commissioned twelve leading contemporary artists to create the official posters for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. No longer in print and with only a few copies left in stock, these premium-quality posters, printed in the UK on 200gsm FSC paper, are likely to become sought-after collectors items. Bob and Roberta Smith use the immediacy of language to create hand-painted signs on pieces of found wood. These signs – painted in the style of community action banners, street signs, and fun fair posters - relay direct and often humorous messages. Taking the values of the Paralympic Games as a starting point, Bob and Roberta Smith propose the core elements of the athlete experience: courage, inspiration, love, and of course sweat.
