There's a pleasant nostalgia that accompanies Peter Blake's work. The 86 year old artist has survived through decades of change. From being evacuated as a boy to teaching the musical legend, Ian Dury. From designing the Brit award statue in 2012 to founding The Brotherhood of Ruralist. Blake is without a doubt a master of his trade.

Wrestlers

His passion for all that is pop culture feeds into his new work; Wrestlers and Tattooed Ladies. As an avid fan of wrestling, Blake continues to explore this subject matter which has been a huge theme throughout his career.

Mr Chow

Wrestlers are not a new subject matter for Blake. "When Michael Chow opened this restaurant he commissioned a group of artists, including me, to make pieces, and he gave us some meals against that work." - Sir Peter Blake speaking with The Observer, Sun 14 March 2004. Mr Chow opened in Knightsbridge, London 1968 and now has 6 other restaurants throughout America. Mr Chow has also been painted by Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and Julian Schnabel.

Tattooed Ladies

Blake has released several 'tattooed people' artworks in his life time. These charming, illustrative ladies are currently hanging in our bunker. The intricacy of these two heavily inked characters are, no doubt, a classic depiction by Blake.
