Nature Still Draws A Crowd by Jamie Reid

Jamie Reid Biography

Established British contemporary artist, Situationist, druid, activist, Jamie Reid is the man who cut-and-pasted the Punk movement of the late 70's. Responsible for the Sex Pistols legendary 'Never Mind the Bollocks' artwork, Reid is the man that put the safety pin through Her Majesty's lower lip.

Loved and loathed, he visually epitomised the D.I.Y punk ethic with his own form of visual anarchy. Reid's unique re-mixing of 1960's imagery with 1970's Punk ethic creates an unsurpassed anarchistic feel.

The Swastika Eyeballs image was first submitted to A&M for the cover of the Sex Pistol's God Save the Queen 7" & subsequently banned. Apart from a poster that was issued in Spain this is the first publication of one of Reid's most iconoclastic images.
