“Summer on the Coke Side of Life” MAKING OF VIDEO
In this video you can see Blake and his team creating the 7m high work of art on the SouthBank. Blake’s enthusiasm for the project shows in his large-scale piece; it is at once an icon for Coke and for his signature style.
The Southbank of the River Thames is one of London’s most vibrant locations; jugglers, mime artists, silver human statues, this place has got the lot. But what would happen it you added the Godfather of UK Pop Art and creator of the legendary Sgt. Peppers album cover, Sir Peter Blake?
