Podcast: Sir Peter Blake in conversation with Tim Marlow

Published 13 August 2015

Celebrated British artist Sir Peter Blake tells Tim Marlow why the work of Joseph Cornell has fascinated him throughout his career.

  • Peter Blake is recognised as one of the founders of British Pop Art. Today the artist continues to make work that spans media including collage, sculpture and printmaking, as well as commercial art in the form of graphics and, notably, album covers. He has created an artistic style that undoubtedly parallels that of Joseph Cornell.

    In this podcast we find out why Cornell’s work has made such an impact on Blake’s own approach to art and what motivated him to create a series of direct homages to work by the late American artist.
