Peter Blake is one of the most influential and original artists working in Britain today, with a career that spans six decades. His fascination with the heroes of popular music, sport and film made him a vital contributor to the mergence of Pop art in Britain. He continues to produce work in a diverse media, including painting, collage, sculpture, assemblage, printmaking and illustration.
Writer and curator Natalie Rudd provides a comprehensive account of Blake’s life and art, with new interviews with the artist.
