Nick on artist Jamie Reid

All press / news

Few people invent a new visual language that has such an important and lasting impact on a generation. Half a century on, Jamie Reid’s work continues to resonate from street culture to high art. His unique, fearless designs will always personify the Punk Rock movement and are inextricably linked to the Sex Pistols, but they also permeate our society on every level.

His style was a huge inspiration when we started Duran Duran and the imagery he created will always remain emblazoned on the fabric of Pop Culture. His irreverence and humour will be greatly missed.

I think the writer and editor of the Evening Standard,  Dylan Jones, has best captured the essence of what Jamie Reid was all about in this obituary - please do read.
