Widely regarded as the godfather of British Pop art and the Young British Artists movement, Peter Blake creates paintings, collages, and prints that blend modernity and nostalgia. Though best known for designing the album cover for the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, he considers painting to be central to his oeuvre. He remains one of the very few artists who have achieved both genuine popularity and critical appreciation. Peter Blake's 'Union Flags' continue the artists love affair with flags, which has continued to be a motif in his work since the 1960's. Peter Blake states '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 Peter Blake has used printmaking to explore the flag in various ways from large scale digital prints from Union Flag badges or illustrations.
