‘Johnny Cash MKII’ is a Giclée print by Brighton artist Simon Dixon. Printed onto 330gsm Somerset Velvet Paper, the print is available in 70 x 70cm and 30 x 30cm, in edition sizes of 50 and 175, and is embossed and numbered.


Simon Dixon was a Brighton-based artist and print maker, whose fine art pieces centred around icons of the twentieth century. Dixon’s love of pop culture and deep interest in twentieth century history combine in a truly distinctive aesthetic: referencing 1960s Pop Art, his paintings are a big, bold and colourful reworking of the traditional portrait.



‘Johnny Cash MKII’ depicts a pop-ified portrait of the eponymous country singer. Against a flat, turquoise-coloured background, Cash poses with his guitar, looking out towards the viewer with striking intensity. Over the image, Dixon has printed the words, ‘This Machine Kills Fascists’: the message that Woody Guthrie famously pinned to his guitar in 1941. An iconic work of art, Dixon has brilliantly merged cultural references, creating a modern-day print to rival Warhol’s Marilyn.




About The Artist - Simon Dixon


Simon Dixon was a Brighton-based artist and print maker, whose fine art pieces centred around icons of the twentieth century. Dixon began painting in 1997 and was influenced by a love of pop culture which went hand-in-hand with a deep interest in twentieth century history. The two combined, resulting in what would become Dixon’s distinctive aesthetic: referencing 1960s Pop Art, his paintings are a big, bold and colourful reworking of the traditional portrait.


Musical subcultures, comic and graphic art, film, and sport all bleed into Dixon’s work, allowing modern cultural motifs to combine with retro styles. His vibrant images are timeless and deeply evocative, full of nostalgia as they capture moments across recent history. His work can be spotted on the walls of galleries, in group shows, and at selective bars and restaurants, both nationwide and internationally. Following his untimely death in 2017, Dixon’s work continues to be lovingly produced by his estate working with Fine Art Guild accredited Printmakers in Brighton.
