    About The Work

    From the artist's iconic "Running Suite" project, commissioned to commemorate 30 years of the Great North Run.

    The artist's mother was born in South Shields (where the race ends), so this is his link to the famous race.

    Sir Peter's 'Running Suite' pictures explore the heritage of running, the event's human element, its international pedigree, its humour and extensive memorabilia. Using images of the iconic half-marathon, cigarette cards and vintage photographs of runners, medals and posters, many of the found images and objects Sir Peter has appropriated are from the Great North Run archives or sourced from the North East, but the finished prints have a distinctly international feel, illustrative of the Pop Art genre the artist has become synonous with.
