Venice Fantasies book

Since the very start of his career, Peter Blake has produced quirky, humorous (and now instantly recognisable) collages, which embrace the absurd.

In his Venice Fantasies Series the artist takes 21 different photographs of Venice captured in the early 1900’s as part of a set of tourist postcards, and transforms them with a cast of unlikely characters and animals. His highly-detailed homage to Venice is inspired by the Surrealist collages of Max Ernst, and imagines Venice’s streets and waterways being overtaken by the likes of Minnie and Mickey Mouse, scout troops, and quintessential American tourists.

Published in 2009, this book features all 21 images from the Venice Fantasies series.

    About the artist
    +

    Heralded as the ‘Godfather of Pop Art’, Sir Peter Blake was knighted in 2002 for his invaluable contribution to contemporary art. 

    Blake began his career creating collages from photographs, cigarette packets and matchboxes. This new approach to the creation of visual art – taking found imagery from Pop culture – was spearheaded in Britain by Blake and continues to inspire contemporary artists today. 

    Best known for creating the iconic cover to the Beatles’ 1967 album ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’, Blake continues to produce work that draws extensively on elements from popular cultures around the world.
