Metropolis Group announces Sir Peter Blake Collaboration.
London’s leading recording studio complex to house a collection of new and classic Sir Peter Blake works of Art at an exhibition in their Power House Studio..
There will be 16 pieces, ranging from the newly launched ‘American Trilogy’ and ‘Found Art Beatles’ through to iconic album cover work for Paul Weller’s ‘Stanley Road’, Ian Dury and the Blockheads’ ‘All New Boots and Panties’ and the piece that bought Peter Blake into the national conscience ‘Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Heartclub band’ for The Beatles. Other pieces are becoming increasingly rare and a collection on this scale is rarely seen. A full list of the pieces is shown below.
The collection will be on show until the new year with pieces available for purchase at the Metropolis Exhibition space at 70 Power Road, Chiswick with access on a strictly invitation only basis for clients and visitors of Metropolis. An opening reception for friends of Sir Peter Blake and Metropolis Group will take place on November 8th and will be attended by Sir Peter Blake with a DJ set by Baxter Dury.
The studio, known for working with the cream of British and International talent continues to expand its offering to the music and entertainment community and this perfect marriage of iconic British artist with London’s leading music studio is the start of a programme of events and experiences being offered by Metropolis to enhance the experience of recording at this west London facility.
‘Like most people my initial exposure to Peter’s work was through his iconic album cover projects, but his recent collage work together with his pop art and found art pieces are inspirational items and we are extremely thrilled to be able to bring these pieces into the studio.’ Says Carla Maroussas From Metropolis.
‘When tasked with bringing prestigious exhibitions to Metropolis, I immediately thought of Sir Peter Blake’s work. The music and art worlds are natural bedfellows and it is an honour to have such fine, striking pieces here at Metropolis. My biggest concern is how do I follow that! ‘ Says Tamsin McLarty, Events Manager at Metropolis.
