artrepublic sends our best wishes to Sir Peter Blake who is celebrating his 81st birthday today.

To mark his 80th birthday last year, Blake created an incredible 22 colour silkscreen inspired by his seminal cover for The Beatles ‘Sgt Pepper’ album, featuring family, friends and 21st century icons. We’re delighted that the British Pop Art pioneer is showing no signs of slowing down; having just released 5 new prints from his wonderful ‘Found Art’ series.

Peter Blake’s works have a beautiful nostalgic and sentimental quality. Born in 1932 in Dartford, Kent, Blake’s rich portfolio of art perfectly captures the progression of British popular culture and design. We hope he is having a wonderful day, full of vintage treasures.
