Sir Peter Blake

Biography

Born in 1932 in Dartford, England, Peter Blake studied at Gravesend Technical college. After two years serving in the RAF, he graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1956. In the 60’s he found fame as one of Britain’s leading exponents of Pop Art, producing collages from the icons and ephemera of popular culture, most notably his cover art for the Beatles ‘Sergeant Pepper’ album. He also taught at St. Martins and Walthamstow Schools of Art. In 1969 he left the city to live in Wellow Avon with his wife, artist Jann Howarth and founded the Brotherhood of Ruralists in 1975. Around this time he also taught at the Royal College of Art. He now works from his studio in Hammersmith and maintains a prolific output of work.
