An exhibition will launch in Brighton in celebration of a prominent figure in the pop art movement who designed album covers for the likes of The Beatles.

Peter Blake – A Print Retrospective will open at Enter Gallery this week to coincide with Sir Peter Blake’s 92nd birthday.

A private view of the exhibition will take place on Friday, June 21, from 6pm to 8pm at the gallery in Bond Street, Brighton.

During the preview Blake’s Art Bus will make an appearance, giving guests an opportunity to board the bus and enjoy a selection of artworks on display.

The show marks Enter Gallery’s most extensive exhibition of Blake’s work to date and features many of the works that earned him the moniker The Godfather of Pop Art.

Blake began his career as a painter and graphic artist, creating collages from found ephemera. He is perhaps best known for creating album covers for The Beatles, Paul Weller, The Who and Brian Wilson to name a few.

Visitors to the gallery can expect to see a wide selection of his most well-known imagery, from his early works that defined the pop art movement to his more recent creations.

The exhibition takes a deep dive into the life and times of the national treasure and explores how "a lad from Dartford found himself in art school" and how his fascination with popular culture kickstarted the Pop Art movement. It also examines the different styles Blake has evolved and developed himself over the years, from collage classics to paintings and painted portraiture.

Since 2007, Enter Gallery has enjoyed a rich relationship with Blake and is one of the leading dealers of his printed editions.

Lawrence Alkin, founder of Enter Gallery, said: “Peter Blake is an amazing artist and one of my personal heroes. I’m honoured to be able to showcase this exciting retrospective that celebrates not only an iconic artist that has sparked the Pop Art movement, but someone I have enjoyed a close working relationship and friendship with over the last 20 years.”

“The first time Peter came to Brighton, he came on his Art Bus – so it has fond memories for me. I’m thrilled to see its return to Brighton and to be able to give the people another chance to enjoy it.”

The exhibition will run until July 2.
