Peter Blake’s stunning ‘Union Flag’ in our Brighton Gallery

A patriotic homage by the God Father of Pop Art.

Peter Blake

Our Brighton Gallery is a treasure trove or rare and collectable prints by the world renowned Pop Artist Sir Peter Blake.

Union Flag’ is a magnificent limited edition silkscreen print that has been embellished with the highest quality archival glitter.

The work continues in Blake’s career-long fascination and love of flags, a repeated motif that has long since served the artist from the beginning of his career in the 1960s.

The edition also proclaims Blake’s love of his country and the union of the British Isles. He has explored his own patriotism in other works including his recent 'Brighton' and 'Four Seasons' box sets.

‘I am very patriotic and I love the Union Flag; the sense of history it gives, the union between four great countries that it represents. Over the years I have used printmaking to explore and experiment with the flag in various ways; making large-scale digital prints from Union Flag badges (sewn or enamel) or illustrations that I have collected."

Peter Blake
“The new works are not based on ‘found’ images of the flag. I wanted to use the variety of hand-applied finishes available when you make a silkscreen, to play with the colours and textures of this simple geometric pattern that is so familiar to us. The prints also celebrate The Queen’s 90th birthday.” – Sir Peter Blake
