Peter Blake's Pop Art ferry

With year 8 currently studying pop art it is timely that Tate Liverpool co-commissioned one of the major figures of British pop art, Sir Peter Blake, to ‘dazzle’ a Mersey Ferry.

Sir Peter has covered the Mersey Ferry Snowdrop, with a distinctive pattern entitled Everybody Razzle Dazzle, transforming the ferry into a moving artwork. Peter Blake (b. 1932) is a leading figure in the development of British pop art and his work is synonymous with the use of imagery from modern culture, including comic books, consumer goods and advertisements.
