Aquarium signed limited edition silkscreen print by British pop art legend Sir Peter Blake, part of the The Classroom Suite .

Every single little fish (of which there must be hundreds in this piece) were cut-out from old reference and fishing books by hand. Sir Peter describes these "cutting" sessions as his relaxation time; he doesn't consider it work. This attention to minute detail leads one to imagine that Sir Peter has a touch of OCD, so stringent is his perfectionism. The result was a visually arresting collage from which this silkscreen has been created. (Peter tells me that he still has plenty of fish left for cutting-out). Aquarium is so densely packed with fish it appears almost pattern-like, it could be an incredibly intricate wallpaper
