Three Final Year History of Art students have launched a blog called 'Peel Slowly and See'. Founded by Alice Hoad, Carinthia Pearson and Kitty Malton, the blog features regular stories, critical writings, and reviews about art, art books, artists, exhibitions, fashion, film, graphics, interviews, philosophy, photography, theatre and more. With high quality graphics and excellent content, the blog demonstrates the lively and innovative student culture enjoyed at Bristol.

They explain that 'the name ‘Peel Slowly and See' derives from the classic 1967 Velvet Underground and Nico album cover by Andy Warhol. The design featured a glossy, yellow sticker of a banana, in Warhol’s iconic pop art style. This is suggestive of the nature of the blog: revealing, reviving and championing the work of a diverse range of up-and-coming, established and forgotten artists.'

Recent items include such diverse topics as a reflection on 'Iconic Albums Covers', a review of 'The Lego Movie', and a look at the career of artist Yayoi Kusama, in tandem with Women's History Month.
