Exhibition at Hicks Gallery features rarely available prints by Peter Blake
Peter Blake, Sources of Pop.


LONDON.- Hicks Gallery’s first show of 2018 features rarely available prints from one of Britain’s foremost artists, Sir Peter Blake – a truly unique opportunity to view and purchase iconic pieces by the ‘Godfather of British pop art’.

One of the twentieth-century’s leading British artists, his work reflects his fascination with all streams of popular culture, and the beauty to be found in everyday objects and surroundings. Many of his works feature found materials such as photographs, comic strips or advertising texts, combined with bold geometric patterns and the use of primary colours.

Whilst his works perfectly capture the effervescent and optimistic ethos of the sixties, they are also tinged with sentimentality and nostalgia with particular focus towards childhood innocence and reminiscence; yet they still manage to remain strikingly fresh and contemporary.

2017 has seen Peter Blake again at the forefront of the British art scene. The recreation of his now iconic studio at “Frieze” is still one of the most talked about events of the year whilst his record-breaking sale at Christie’s for ‘Lady Luck’ shows he is an artist whose popularity only continues to grow both here in the UK and internationally.

Hicks Gallery was first established in 1988 but quickly out grew its original premises in Wimbledon and moved to Leopold Road, SW19 where it has grown over the last twenty five years. The gallery has become known for promoting the work of emerging and established artists in all mediums whether in painting, print or sculpture.

Originally founded by Jeff and Ann Hicks the gallery is now run by Jeff and his daughter Alice who brings a new fresh dynamic to the business. One of the founding principles was to offer work of exceptional quality and affordability in a relaxing unpressured environment.
