'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 reflective of the artist's signature style in colour, monochrome and shape.
Sir Peter Blake (b. 1932) is a leading figure in the development of British Pop art and his work is synonymous with the use of imagery from modern culture, including comic books, consumer goods and advertisements. Blake has a strong relationship with Liverpool that extends beyond his famous design of The Beatles’ album cover Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band in 1967.
