Olympic Symbol by Peter Blake
Olympic Symbol' was created to celebrate Team GB's participation in the 2020 Olympic Summer Games in Tokyo, Japan. Abstracting the Olympic Rings, Blake creates a complex geometric grid of vivid colours. The resulting dynamic shapes evoke images of athletic tracks.
The heart symbol appearing in this print is one of many symbols that regularly appear in Blake's oeuvre. Stars, targets, rainbows and hearts are prevalent in many of his early works, such as 'Love Wall' from 1961. The symbols are relfective of the artist's signature style in colour, monocrhrome and shape.
