THE SCOTTISH TEXT AND BILLBOARD ARTIST GOES FROM POET VANDAL TO RISING ART STAR

 

Robert Montgomery is sitting at the bar at Soho House puffing on an e-cigarette that he has nicknamed “Johnny Depp.” When he exhales, the smoke emits a blue color, perfectly matching the neon blue bold letters on his T-shirt that read POET VANDAL. It’s an example of ideal labeling, as he is, exactly, a poet who vandalizes public billboards. The shirt is his own design for the London-based clothing label, Each X Other, whose slogan is Art Meets Fashion. Also fitting, as the Scotland-born Montgomery is also an artist.
