Sometimes called the 'Godfather of pop', Peter Blake is best well known for his album art cover for The Beatles's Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band in 1967. The Hang-Up Gallery is currently holding an exhibition of his work until the 27th October, where you will not only be able to see his paintings on display, but buy prints as well.

Blake's career began to take off in the late 1950s when he worked in advertising for wrestlers and the music industry. In the sixties and seventies, he traversed into the world of literature, producing Shakespearean scenes and watercolour illustrations for Lewis Carroll's Alice Through the Looking Glass.

POP showcases rare and unique collections that Blake has produced over the decades. These include I Love You from his Alphabet Series, and pin-up posters.
