The largest artwork Sir Peter Blake has ever created, Our Fans is a collage of 100 prominent faces, from Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren to Joanna Lumley and Jenny Packham. All are regular guests at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London as well as fans of the group’s hotels around the world.

The collage has become Blake’s trademark format and one that he has returned to time and again over the years.

 “This artwork was very different to my usual way of working,” he said. “A collage is very time consuming and laborious, but this was more a matter of arranging the figures and making them work together - making sure no one had a cut-off shoulder or missing legs - that’s the skill of it. It was an amazing project to work on. Hopefully, people passing by will try to spot celebrities they recognize.”
