Peter Blake

Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll is our first edition by Peter Blake, published in collaboration with Dark Matter Studio. Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll is an archival pigment print based on a watercolour painting featured in the artist’s 2018 exhibition, ‘A Life in Drawings and Watercolours,’ at Waddington Custot gallery, London. A renowned British Pop artist, Blake’s imagery is derived from popular culture, as seen in his ongoing series of tattooed people. The intricate and brightly-coloured tattoos decorating the figure’s body in Sex & Drugs reference legends such as George and the Dragon and popular imagery, such as the American flag and bald eagle.

Peter Blake
Sir Peter Blake (born 1932 in Kent, UK) is a prominent British painter, sculptor and printmaker. He studied at Gravesend School of Art before the Royal College of Art where he worked alongside celebrated British artists such as David Hockney. After graduating in 1956, Blake began referencing popular culture and celebrities in his work, establishing himself as a leading British Pop artist. His iconic ‘Self Portrait With Badges’ (1961) is a depiction of the artist sporting badges referencing 1960s popular imagery, and is currently part of the Tate collection. Blake was made an Academician at the Royal Academy of Arts in 1981 and knighted in 2002. Tate Liverpool held a major retrospective of his work in 2007, and he is featured in collections across the globe from the Museum of Modern Art in New York to the Museum Moderner Kunst in Vienna, and across Britain. He lives and works in London.
