Sir Peter Blake

About

Co-creator of the album artwork for Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Peter Blake is Britain’s best-loved Pop Artist. After studying at the Royal College of Art (honing his influences on a year abroad in Europe during which he visited both galleries and folk museums), he quickly achieved notoriety, receiving a knighthood for services to visual arts in 2002. Blake works with a variety of materials, including sculpture and engraving as well as painting and print-making.
