If you ask Sir Peter Blake what he would like to be known best for, he certainly won’t say the Beatles’ Sgt Pepper’s album cover. It is a challenge for him to get press coverage without mentioning it!

 By 29 Sir Peter Blake was a well-established key member of the Pop Art movement. He had already sold works across the UK and the USA and had exhibited at The Royal Academy. His life was surrounded by stars, he was represented by the London Art Dealer, Robert Fraser, who placed him at the heart of swinging London in the sixties. Now, in his eighties, he is working as hard as ever.

Since his emergence in the 1950s and as a key member of the 1960’s burgeoning Pop Art movement, Sir Peter,  the Godfather of British Pop Art, has been one of the best-known British artists of his generation.  He remains one of the very few artists who have achieved both genuine popularity and critical appreciation.  He has worked closely with musicians including Oasis, The Who and Eric Clapton to create some of the most recognizable album covers of the last 60 years.

Silkscreen with glitter, embossing, glazes and 3D printed collaged elements

Peter Blake returns to his Wooden Puzzle Series to explore the latest advance in printing technology: three-dimensional printing. This technology enables the objects featured in the silkscreen collage compositions to be represented in three dimensions, creating an editioned collage that gives the impression of real found objects. The prints are mounted on wood reinforcing the concept of a cabinet full of treasured and curious objects and images, as well as echoing the title of the series and supporting the weight of the 3d printed objects. This series is Blake’s first all-printed three-dimensional artwork.

A limited edition silkscreen print with gold leaf, embossing and diamond dust by legendary pop artist, Sir Peter Blake.

Price: £2900

‘American Trilogy (Cream and Gold Diamond Dust)’ is a striking print featuring three American Icons: The Stars and Stripes of the American flag, Elvis Presley and Coca Cola. This classic pop art image by Peter Blake explores the power of mass consumer products and popular culture, and America’s leadership in 1950s mass culture revolution.

As part of a set of three, all finished with gold or silver leaf, this print echoes the concept of mass production in the Pop Art tradition. The repetition of slightly varied imagery is reminiscent of the work of Andy Warhol, echoing the ‘sameness’ of mass production.

Limited Edition Silkscreen Print with Gold Leaf and Diamond Dust

‘Union Flag (small)’ is a signed Limited Edition Silkscreen print with glitter by the legendary pop artist Sir Peter Blake.

Price: £2200

Peter Blake’s ‘Union Flags’ continue the artist’s love affair with flags (a motif which has recurred in his work since the 1960s) and of course with his country. In recent years Peter Blake has explored patriotism in various works including ‘England Forever’, ‘Hope and Love’, ‘Britannia’ and ’24 Flags’

‘I am very patriotic and I love the Union Flag; the sense of history it gives, the union between four great countries that it represents. Over the years I have used printmaking to explore and experiment with the flag in various ways; making large-scale digital prints from Union Flag badges (sewn or enamel) or illustrations that I have collected. The new works are not based on ‘found’ images of the flag. I wanted to use the variety of hand-applied finishes available when you make a silkscreen, to play with the colours and textures of this simple geometric pattern that is so familiar to us. The prints also celebrate The Queen’s 90th birthday.”

-Sir Peter Blake

‘A Rose, is a Rose, is a Rose’ is a set of 3 vibrant silkscreen prints on paper with collaged elements, and glazes by Sir Peter Blake.

Set Price: £2950

Consisting of three stunning silkscreen prints with glazes, each print takes on the subject of a rose in a different direction exerting Blake’s signatures watercolour, collage and pop art styles.

All three prints are beautifully presented together in a rich petrol blue archival box with title page and colophon.

The sentence ‘Rose is a rose is a rose’ was written by Gertrude Stein as part of the 1913 poem ‘Sacred Emily’, which appeared in the 1922 book ‘Geography and Plays’. In the poem, it references that the first ‘Rose’ is the name of a person. As one of her most famous quotations, Stein later used variations of the quote in her other writing and it is often interpreted as a means to say ‘things are what they are’.

Having always liked the quote and having named his own daughter Rose, Blake took joy in developing these prints in an instinctive direction, evolving the meaning of the quote from a statement of the law of identity to an artistic translation using print media to create three exquisite silkscreens.

This Limited Edition print set of 100 is hand signed and numbered by Peter Blake.

Duchamp’s World Tour- DC Thomson Reunion at the Tower Ballroom, Blackpool- signed limited edition silkscreen print on paper with lithographic collage by Pop Art artist Sir Peter Blake CBE

Price: £2450

Making a trio with The Animals’ Fancy Dress Ball and New Year’s Eve Parade, Peter Blake completes his imagined narrative of Marcel Duchamp visiting The Tower Ballroom, Blackpool while on a tour of England. Each edition is made using a combination of silkscreen and lithography; the first time Blake has combined these two mediums.

In the early 2000s Blake made a series of paintings under the title Marcel Duchamp’s World Tour, these large works centred on the idea of Marcel Duchamp finding himself in unexpected situations: playing chess with Tracey Emin, or on a tour bus with the Spice Girls. The Tower Ballroom prints are an extension of this playful concept; a further incident on Duchamps’s tour of the world. Blake includes the figure of Duchamp in each piece, it is for the viewer to seek him out. The three works imagine three different and fantastical events that Duchamp attends during his stay in Blackpool. On this occasion Duchamp is an honoured guest at a reunion of DC Thomson characters,

‘I saw Beano and Dandy as a child in the 1940s and the characters stayed in my memory, especially Lord Snooty and the gang. I thought it would be nice for Marcel Duchamp to meet the animals and all my chums from DC Thomson.‘

Peter Blake

Blake’s homage to Duchamp is not surprising; he paved the way for many modern and contemporary art movements including pop art, installation art and conceptual art, as well as influencing many of the YBAs (Hirst, Emin. Quinn, Turk-all of whom are friends of Blake). Duchamp’s mission statement that anything an artist did could be art, has certainly been central to Blake’s work and his philosophy of fine art.

The Blackpool Tower Ballroom is an iconic choice for an artist who has always been fascinated by popular leisure activities. He populates the ballroom with a magic crowd of much-loved characters including Dennis and Gnasher, Minnie the Minx, Roger the Dodger, Desperate Dan, Lord Snooty, the Bash Street Kids and many more.

The ‘Dazzle’ designs are inspired by the razzle dazzle or dazzle painting used on ships in WWI and WW2. Unlike other forms of camouflage, dazzle camouflage works not by concealing but by baffling the eye, making it difficult to estimate a target’s range, speed and direction.

In 2015 Peter Blake was commissioned to ‘dazzle’ a Mersey Ferry, the result was ‘Everyone Razzle Dazzle’ and the print it inspired ‘Dazzle’.

‘Dazzle Disc’ is a striking Limited Edition Print by acclaimed pop Artist, Sir Peter Blake.

Price: £3500

This piece of art is a signed limited edition silkscreen print with glazes and comes from an edition of 100.

‘Dazzle Disc’ references Sir Peter Blake’s early work as well as his recent exploration of the ‘dazzle’ effect. This was originally a method of helping vessels avoid enemy detection in World War One.

In 2015 Peter Blake was commissioned to ‘dazzle’ a Mersey Ferry, the result was ‘Everybody Razzle Dazzle’ and the print it inspired ‘Dazzle’. The choice of a circular format for this new work has multiple resonances; the most obvious being that of a vinyl record, but also a badge, a film reel, a rose window.

His choice of the word ‘disc’ is certainly suggestive of the influence music and musicians have had throughout his career.  The composition was originally created as a stained glass window for installation at Worton Hall Studios (the printmaking centre in London where Blake has his own studio space).

‘Appropriated Alphabets No.10’ is a stunning Limited Edition Silkscreen Print on paper with matt and gloss glazes by Pop Art Icon, Sir Peter Blake.

Price: £1500

Limited edition of 100

Can be purchased as part of the Appropriated Alphabets portfolio: comprises 12 individual alphabet works in a presentation folder. Each work has an unique finish including gold leaf, embossing, collage and metallic inks.

Appropriated Alphabets is a portfolio of twelve Alphabets created or sourced from his personal collection of printed ephemera.

His interest in letters and typography began whilst studying Art at Gravesend Technical College (1949-51); Blake was given a thorough grounding in a wide range of crafts including Roman lettering, hand lettering, typography and typesetting.  This training has seeped into his work throughout his career with text often being an integral – or the only – element of a piece.  The use of ‘found letters’ or commercial lettering in his work is something that Blake adopted in the 1950s; allying himself with decorators, sign painters and commercial artists rather than the fine art establishment: declaring himself a ‘pop’ artist.  Blake has created several works based around the alphabet during his career, including his 1991 pop culture alphabet and his 2007 nursery collage alphabet.  His interest in the alphabet can be linked to the exploration of childhood innocence and nostalgia that permeates his work.

‘Lord Mayor’s Show 800 Years 1215-2015’ is a stunning Silkscreen Print with glazes by Sir Peter Blake.

Price: £550

Limited edition of 800 (One for every year of the Lord Mayor’s show. Each will be individually numbered 1215-2015/800)

Created to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the Lord Mayor’s Show in 2015, Peter Blake follows great artists of the past Canaletto and Hogarth in taking inspiration from this unique event. Blake set himself the daunting task of depicting every century of the parade in one image, the result is a continuous procession down the paper, and down the years, that captures the splendour, chaos, pomp and ribaldry of the Lord Mayor’s Show. From knights in armour to acrobats and inflatable pigs, the spirit of the City of London leaps from the paper.

The work is constructed using the collage technique favoured by Blake throughout his career, combining this traditional method with digital technology. He has sourced imagery from art, historical archives, periodicals, newspapers, satirical cartoons, photographs, social media and more, harnessing these elements together to tell the story of 800 years of London’s history,

Most things I do are full of stories, and this most particularly-there are all kinds of things going on. In the narrative of the parade things emerge, there are particular characters who are up to various antics. You find stories for yourself. I wanted to create a mix of the seriousness of it, but also the fun.‘ SIR PETER BLAKE

Marcel Duchamp’s World Tour – The Animals’ Fancy Dress Ball in the Tower Ballroom, Blackpool is a signed limited edition silkscreen print on paper with lithographic collage by Pop Art artist Sir Peter Blake CBE.

Price: £1950

Limited edition of 100

Silkscreen and lithograph

Making a trio with The New Years Eve Parade and DC Thompson Reunion, Peter Blake completes his imagined narrative of Marcel Duchamp visiting The Tower Ballroom, Blackpool while on a tour of England. Each edition is made using a combination of silkscreen and lithography; the first time Blake has combined these two mediums.

In the early 2000s Peter Blake made a series of paintings under the title Marcel Duchamp’s World Tour, these large works centred on the idea of Marcel Duchamp finding himself in unexpected situations: playing chess with Tracey Emin, or on a tour bus with the Spice Girls. His two new prints are an extension of this playful concept, and here Marcel finds himself at Blackpool Tower Ballroom in some of the most Dadaist company you could imagine. Blake’s homage to Duchamp is not surprising; he paved the way for many modern and contemporary art movements including pop art, installation art and conceptual art, as well as influencing many of the YBAs (Hirst, Emin. Quinn, Turk-all of whom are friends of Blake). Duchamp’s mission statement that anything an artist did could be art, has certainly been central to Blake’s work and his philosophy of fine art.

Duchamp can be spotted in both prints; in New Year’s Eve Parade he is in the guise of his female alter ego, Rose Selavy.

The Blackpool Tower Ballroom is an obvious choice for an artist who has always been fascinated by popular leisure activities. He populates the ballroom with a magic crowd. Each figure and animal painstakingly cut out from his personal collection of print ephemera. The choice of revellers includes clowns, wizards, mermaids, sailors and tribal warriors, mirroring the Dada principles of nonsense and irrationality.

’75 Years of The Beano’ is a Limited Edition Silkscreen with glazes by pop artist Sir Peter Blake.

Price: £2500

Limited edition of 175

Silkscreen with glazes

Peter Blake has collaborated with The Beano to create a special limited edition print celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the much-loved comic. Coriander Studio was initially approached by The Beano’s publisher DC Thomson in early 2013, after Blake’s work was referenced extensively by Wayne Hemingway in the creation of the new style guide for The Beano.  The artist also readily acknowledges the great visual influence that the comic has had on his own work, making him an ideal choice for this 75th Anniversary Project.  Further conversations led Blake to focus upon the Bash Street Kids comic strip, which was devised by Beano editor George Moonie in 1954.  Moonie had based the strip on the view from his office window in Dundee, where he would see schoolchildren pouring out of the gates of Dundee High School.

Taking the Bash Street Kids as his inspiration, Blake has recreated a scene representing Moonie’s view from the Beano office.  The comic strip children have been substituted for the High School pupils seen against the backdrop of Dundee High School.

Though based around the concept of The Bash Street Kids flooding out of school, all the key Beano characters appear in the image including Dennis the Menace, Gnasher, Billy Wizz, Lord Snooty and Minnie the Minx.  Blake mixes old and new illustrations showing how the Beano has developed over 75 years.
