Sir Peter Blake has been producing some amazing new pieces recently so we thought we would highlight just some of the gems you can find in our Brighton gallery.
Sir Peter Blake is one of the leading figures in British pop art. Best known for the iconic album cover for the Beatles ‘Sergeant Pepper’, Blake’s work is inspired by his love affair with icons and the ephemera of popular culture. His career spans from the birth of pop art in the 1960’s up until the present day.
Here is a close look at just some of the great new pieces by Peter Blake you will find in or Brighton gallery.
‘I Love You’ are four amazing prints first previewed during the Brighton festival when the Art Bus came to Brighton and Peter Blake delivered a lunch time talk.
Made up of a variety of different letters they reflect Peter Blakes love of collecting all sorts of ephemeral items which he then selects and combines into many of his eclectic works. Each one of these amazing is created with 15 colour silkscreens plus gold and silver leaf and embossing. Two of the prints are also finished with diamond dust for that extra touch of glamour. We have one set of all four prints with matching numbers and a great pair of framed diamond dust white and black I Love You’s on the wall of our Brighton gallery.
‘The Motif Suite’ is a wonderful new collection of four stunning digitally printed tin plates. The four motifs are Rainbow, Heart, Target and Star each one singed by Peter Blake and in an edition of 25. The images are classic Peter Blake and are produced by the same publishers as the more affordable ‘I Love London’ and ‘I Love Recycling’. These bold and colourful pop art images will brighten up any home long after the summer has gone.
The final set of works we are highlighting is the Star series. Featuring a range of stars from Kate Moss to the Beatles these are incredibly detailed and each one is in a singed edition of 100. The background of worn wood has been reproduced with such a detailed silkscreen that looks just like the real thing! On top of this is the photo of the star and then underneath the diamond dust covered star.
UK customers can also spread the cost of these new pieces with Own Art.
