Matchboxes II- signed limited edition silkscreen print by Sir Peter Blake

Creating a pair with Matchboxes (2011), Blake’s new work features more of his collection of rare, antique, novelty and international matchboxes. This time the matchboxes are presented on a warm red background, complementing the blue used in the earlier work. Turning this collection into a piece of fine art harks back to the key tenets of Pop art: that everyday objects should be viewed with a fresh perspective;  as valuable and beautiful. Here Blake creates a composition of surprising visual diversity and that evokes a by-gone era.
