About the artist
Jamie Reid (born in 1947) is probably best known for his work with the Sex Pistols (1976-80), designing album and single covers such as ‘God Save the Queen’, based on Cecil Beaton’s portrait of Queen Elizabeth, with an added safety pin through her nose and swastikas over her eyes, and the cover for ‘Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols’ which came in at number two in a Rolling Stone Magazine poll of the best rock album sleeves of all time. Jamie Reid's longstanding practice as an artist sits firmly within a tradition of English radical dissent that would include, for example, William Blake, Wat Tyler and Gerrard Winstanley. Like them, the work of dissent must offer, out of necessity, other social and spiritual models and Reid's practice is no exception. Although Reid is known primarily for the deployment of Situationist strategies in his iconic work for the Sex Pistols and Suburban Press, his work also is displays a concern with spirituality. It is this dialectic between Gnosticism and dissent that lies at the heart of Reid's practice and makes him one of the great English iconoclastic artists.
