Virtual Studio Visit to Sir Peter Blake’s Print Studio

A visit to the celebrated British artist’s printmaking studio, in which he discusses the ‘trunk and branches’ of his practice, including some of the works he will be showing at Multiplied 2015


‘I’ve always described the way I work as an oak tree,’ explains Sir Peter Blake (the Godfather of British Pop art) from the comfort of his printmaking studio at CCA in the old Isleworth film studios, in London. ‘The trunk is that I’m a straightforward figurative painter, and the branches are excursions into other mediums.’

At Multiplied 2015, the UK’s only fair devoted exclusively to contemporary art in editions (Christie’s South Kensington, 16-18 October), Blake will be showing a selection of works. Here, the artist talks through his approach to printmaking and the thinking behind some of his latest work: the Tower Ballroom at Blackpool series, the silkscreen series he has made of The Wrestlers, and his Found Art series. More of Sir Peter Blake’s silkscreen prints can be viewed at CCA Galleries.
