King of punk art

Photos: Merge Festival

Jamie helped define the image of punk rock with some of his best known works adorning the covers of the Sex Pistols albums Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols and the singles "Anarchy in the UK" and "God Save The Queen", "Pretty Vacant" and "Holidays in the Sun". Jamie Reid's unique vision articulates and gives form to some of the key issues of our times. His art, now showing at the Merge festival in London, is preformed with passionate anger and a lot of humor. PerfectionMakesMeYawn would have loved to be there to admire the historical pieces live.
