Share the Love with Sir Peter Blake on his 80th Birthday

British pop artist Sir Peter Blake celebrates his 80th birthday in 2012. "I started to be an artist at the age of 14," he recalls, "so it’s been 66 years as a student and then artist, so it’s become a long career. And it’s had its high points, and it’s had its bad points. I think most of my ambitions have been achieved." Revered as a curator and an artist, his work is a celebration of six decades of British culture and the best of Pop Art. Blake focused on screen idols for his Love series of silkscreen prints; from Doris Day and Frank Sinatra, through to the Beatles and contemporary pop icons.
