Painter of urban realist subjects, and often referred to as the Godfather of British Pop Art, Peter Blake set out to make art as accessible and pervasive as that of pop music. To this end, Blake’s paintings and collages embrace the emblems and iconography of popular culture, and he was the first artist to include youth culture idols in British high art. Best known for his record sleeve cover for The Beatles’ Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Blake has also designed record sleeve covers for Paul Weller (Stanley Road), Band Aid (Do They Know It’s Christmas), and most recently a greatest hits album for Oasis, and the John Peel tribute album. A fan of iconic legends and the ever-expanding practices of imitation and reproducibility, Blake’s “popular art" continues to be a highly influential and enduring presence.
