Jamie Reid (born 1947) is a British artist and political activist. During his time at Croydon Art College, he was involved in the student movement of 1968 where he and Malcolm McLaren organised an occupation of the college. In 1970, he co-founded the radical political magazine Suburban Press, where he developed his unique style of cut-up graphics and slogans. Reid is best known for designing album covers for the British punk rock band the Sex Pistols. His imagery became a defining aesthetic of punk rock, particularly in the United Kingdom. Reid continues to design album covers and to engage visually with socio-political situations, such as Occupy, Extinction Rebellion and the Free Pussy Riot movement. A recent focus has been his Eight Fold year series – a re-adaptation of his work from the late 60s and early 70s, bringing a new aesthetic to the same fundamental messages. Reid’s exhibition Taking Liberties: Political Work 1970-2020 opened at Galerie Simpson Swansea and has toured the UK. This exhibition is scheduled to travel to de Montfort University, Leicester, opening July 2023. Reid’s work is included in international collections including Tate Britain, Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Museum of Fine Art in Houston. He is engaged with Liverpool John Moores University to secure the Jamie Reid Archive, and is actively involved with the Florence Institute community centre in Toxteth, Liverpool.
