Join the revolution with subversive work from the Punk Pioneer Jamie Reid.
With the world in its current state of turmoil and uncertainty, we need someone who's not afraid to stick two fingers up at the establishment and seriously ruffle some feathers. Here in the Brighton gallery, we think no artist does it better than the Godfather of Punk Jamie Reid.
Jamie Reid shot to fame in the 1970s after creating the iconic album artwork for ‘Never Mind The Bollocks’ by seminal punk rockers The Sex Pistols. He also invented the ransom note style cut out technique used to caption the album and single covers. The legacy of the lettering continues to this day. It was employed for t-shirts worn by 10,000 people during the anti-poll tax demonstrations in Trafalgar Square in 1990, and has even been imitated by McDonald's.

"The image deals with mutual interests of Jamie and I, addressing the timeless problems of corruption and wealth inequality, but tie into the very current themes of Occupy Wall Street and the dead end of fossil fuel consumption." - Shepard Fairey on his collaboration with Jamie Reid
