Peter Blake

Peter Blake Alphabet | A for Alphabet is from his 1991 series of letters depicting his pop art inspirations. In this the first of the letters series Blake depicts the whole alphabet using a nursery rhyme. This choice reveals his enduring fascination with childhood nostalgia (which is key to all of his work), as well as his interest in Victorian/Edwardian graphic illustration. In short A is for Alphabet summarises many of Blake’s most central influences: his love of fairytales and childhood stories, his interest in animal illustrations, and his use of antique graphics.

Peter Blake Sources of Pop Art IV. Sir Peter Thomas Blake (born 25 June 1932) is an English pop artist, best known as the ‘godfather of British Pop Art’ and the Young British Artists movement. Sir Peter Blake was knighted in 2002 for his invaluable contribution to contemporary art.

Blake began his career creating collages from photographs, cigarette packets and matchboxes. This new approach to the creation of visual art – taking found imagery from Pop culture – was spearheaded in Britain by Blake and continues to inspire contemporary artists today.

Widely recognised for creating the iconic cover to the Beatles’ 1967 album ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’, covers for two of The Who’s albums, the cover of the Band Aid single “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”, and the Live Aid concert poster. Blake continues to produce work that draws extensively on elements from popular cultures around the world.
