Jamie Reid, the iconic artist and graphic designer whose collage work for the Sex Pistols helped define the Punk aesthetic, has died aged 76. We were lucky enough to see Jaime during a Zoom interview at Nuart Aberdeen this year on the wonderful Ova land art project he created with John Marchant. 

But ultimately, Reid was famous for those works he made for the Sex Pistols, works that stood the test of time and became synonymous with anti-authority, DIY and defined the cut n’paste collage style we would begin to see in street art wheatpasting and zine culture moving forward. Inspired the politics and the art of the late 1960s and the Situationists, he once said, “Our culture is geared towards enslavement – for people to perform pre-ordained functions, particularly in the workplace. I’ve always tried to encourage people to think about that and to do something about it.”

His galleriest and friend, John Marchant, wrote today, “artist, iconoclast, anarchist, punk, hippie, rebel and romantic. Jamie leaves behind a beloved daughter Rowan, a granddaughter Rose, and an enormous legacy.”
