Super screenprint by the listed Peter Blake.

W is for Wrestler by Sir Peter Blake is from his 1991 series of alphabet letters. It depicts the British wrestler Peter Thornley who performed as Kendo Nagasaki, legendary Japanese samurai warrior. Blake has always been a fan of wrestling; loving the theatricality, the over-the-top stage names and the boyhood fantasies of super-heroes and super-villains.

It uses a photo taken by Terrence Donovan.

It retails online for £1000 (see CCA galleries) Published: 1991

Image Size: 510 mm X 722 mm Paper Size: 780 mm X 1020 mm

Edition Size: 95

Numbered 41/95 and signed.

Several faint marks to the left margins of the sheet and a couple on the right, outside of the printed area which is in mint condition.  a couple of light handling creases.  All would be covered by a mount and are away from the printed area.

Godfather of British Pop Art Sir Peter Blake has been collaborating with CCA since 2003, producing spectacular original prints. His work crosses all generational divides, and inspires great respect from younger artists such as Damien Hirst, Gavin Turk, Pure Evil and Tracey Emin. Knighted in 2002, an honorary doctor of the Royal College of Art, and with his work represented in major collections throughout the world, Sir Peter Blake truly is a grandee of British Art.

Sir Peter Blake's work reflects his fascination with all streams of popular culture, and the beauty to be found in everyday objects and surroundings. Many of his works feature found printed materials such as photographs, comic strips or advertising texts, combined with bold geometric patterns and the use of primary colours. The works perfectly capture the effervescent and optimistic ethos of the sixties, but are also strikingly fresh and contemporary. There is also a strain of sentimentality and nostalgia running throughout his work, with particular focus towards childhood innocence and reminiscence, as can be seen clearly in his recent Alphabet series. Blake is renowned for his connection with the music industry, having produced iconic album covers for the Beatles, Paul Weller, The Who, and Oasis.
