This week we look at Sir Peter Blake’s pop inspired dazzle design currently decorating the Mersey commuter ferry Snowdrop.
Sir Peter’s new artwork Everybody Razzle Dazzle was created in honour of dazzle painting – a form of camouflage created by artists, used during WW1 to confuse and mislead enemies targeting British naval vessels.
Sir Peter’s twist on the iconic technique is his largest scale commission to date and will give visitors to Liverpool an opportunity to step on board a floating art-work.
Everybody Razzle Dazzle is co-commissioned by Liverpool Biennial, 14-18 NOW WW1 Centenary Art Commissions, and Tate Liverpool in partnership with Merseytravel and National Museums Liverpool (Merseyside Maritime Museum). Supported by Arts Council England, National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund and Department for Culture Media and Sport.
