The Sex Pistols’ cover artist Jamie Reid has died aged 76.
He created the artwork for several of the seminal punk band’s hits in the 1970s, including ‘God Save the Queen’, with his collage style still being copied decades later.
His gallerist confirmed to BBC News Jamie had died on Tuesday (08.08.23) and added he leaves behind an “enormous legacy”.
A statement from the John Marchant Gallery said: “We sadly announce the passing of Jamie MacGregor Reid 16 January 1947 – 8 August 2023.
“Artist, iconoclast, anarchist, punk, hippie, rebel and romantic. Jamie leaves behind a beloved daughter Rowan, a granddaughter Rose, and an enormous legacy.”
