Everybody Razzle Dazzle
Until December 2016 / River Mersey, Liverpool Waterfront.
Sir Peter Blake’s design entitled Everybody Razzle Dazzle covers the Mersey Ferry Snowdrop with a distinctive pattern in monochrome and colour, transforming the vessel into a moving artwork as it continues its service. This is the third of the Dazzle Ship commissions and the first to be a working vessel. It joins Induction Chromatique à Double Fréquence pour l’Edmund Gardner Ship / Liverpool. Paris 2014 by Carlos Cruz-Diez on the Liverpool Waterfront, and Tobias Rehberger’s Dazzle Ship Londonon the River Thames.
“A great infusion of WW1 and pop art history into an everyday sight”
“The dazzle is unbelievable! Very artistic, interesting and the story behind it is excellent.”
