What Pop Art’s Sir Peter Blake did with organic chocolate
November 22, 2009 by Jen Marsden
We love the Godfather of Pop Art and we love Green & Black’s chocolate. So we got very excited to hear about a new gallery competition that combines the two and allows you to win 700 bars – yes 700 – of the gorgeous choc! Jen Marsden writes.
Sir Peter Blake is renowned for his iconic cover for The Beatles album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. But his most recent venture includes creating gorgeous pop art out of 700 bars of Green & Black’s most colourful and new packaging, which you can buy to decorate your own walls with to make a very cool eco statement at the dedicated Art of Green & Blacks website.
Following in Sir Peter’s footsteps, organic choccie lovers everywhere have been invited to join in the fun of creating a similar gallery exhibit. Each flavoured chocolate bar becomes a paintbrush colour that you can mess around with on a blank digital canvas.
Now it’s your turn. And, if you are the lucky person to be selected by a public voting system in the gallery, you could win a real life 700 bar version of it for yourself!
You can visit Sir Peter’s work - (chocol’)art – from 26th-29th November at the Art Barter exhibition at trendy East London’s The Rag Factory .
