Pop Art is a series of art works I’ve been making, inspired by the cover art of The Beatles’ album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, which you can’t have failed to notice is celebrating its 50th anniversary. I’ve given the project its own page on here on the blog. And am doing a talk about the cover that inspired it.
The cover is undoubtably the most famous album artwork ever – and as it was done by a couple of bone fide pop artists – Peter Blake and Jann Haworth – so can it also claim to be the most famous piece of pop art? Whether it is or not, is something I’ll be discussing at a free talk I’m giving during the Didsbury Arts Festival on Saturday 1 July 2017 from 3:30 to 4:30pm at The Parsonage, 853 Wilmslow Road, Didsbury, Manchester, M20 2SG.
