POP

Sir Peter Blake

Sep 7, 2013 – Oct 27, 2013

Hang-Up Gallery is thrilled to announce POP, our highly anticipated exhibition of prints from the undisputed Godfather of Pop, Peter Blake. The exhibition will showcase a unique and quirky collection of rare prints and canvas editions that the British icon has produced over the decades.

From pop-inspired pin-up posters to his nostalgic and unusual alphabet series, the show will celebrate the extraordinary and highlight how Peter’s earlier works continue to inspire his current practice. He explains, “I’m still making excursions and experimenting. Going back to the roots, but still moving forwards”.

The artist has a raw talent of finding beauty in everyday objects and surroundings, incorporating printed materials such as photographs, comic strips or advertising texts against bold, vivid colour. With his work represented in major collections throughout the world, Peter Blake truly is a grandee of British Art.

Artist

Sir Peter Blake

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.
