‘God Save the Queen (Swastika Eyes)’ is a Giclée Print by contemporary artist Jamie Reid. From a limited edition of 313, signed and numbered by the artist, each print is uniquely hand distressed, stained, and folded.


British artist Jamie Reid is known for his iconic work with the Sex Pistols in the 1970s. Remember the anarchic Queen with a safety pin through her nose? And the famous God Save the Queen album cover? Reid was behind both: images that have become cultural icons of the twentieth century. His art continues to be fiercely politically engaged, radically subversive, and visually powerful, and cult collectors include Vivienne Westwood, Madonna, and Angelina Jolie.

‘God Save the USA (Swastika Eyes)’ is Reid’s response to today’s political climate. Alluding to his earlier work, the print depicts the face of the Queen, a safety pin through her nose and swastika-printed buttons over her eyes, while the words ‘God Save The Queen’ surround her face in juvenile type. Printed with black ink onto hand-distressed, off-white paper, and blotted with traces of red and blue pigment, the piece has a distinctly retro feel about it: a chilling reminder of 2017’s political regressions.
