MLF and the Dylan Thomas 100 are delighted to present a rare in-conversation with the Godfather of Pop Art. A prolific artist known for his beautiful collages, paintings and record sleeves, Sir Peter Blake is also a life-long admirer of Welsh poet and playwright Dylan Thomas. Published to mark the centenary of Dylan Thomas’s birth, Blake’s Under Milk Wood includes an impressive body of work inspired by the characters, locations, narratives and dream sequences of Thomas’s cult radio play. Created over the last three decades, the work includes portraits, watercolours and collages that lovingly imagine Thomas’s fictional village of Llaregubb. This event will be hosted by author and Dylan Thomas expert, Jeff Towns, and will feature projections of Blake’s art.
