Blake in Depth

On the eve of the opening of Candlestar’s exhibition of prints by Peter Blake at the Hyatt Regency the BBC will screen an in-depth interview with the artist by Mark Lawson. This interview explores how Blake became an ‘accidental artist’, his reputation as the godfather of Pop Art, his iconic Sgt Pepper album cover and ‘barmy’ late period. As with the Hyatt exhibition, Lawson’s interview ranges across the six decades of Blake’s career and underlines the point that Sir Peter Blake remains a true luminary of the British art world.
