‘God Save Us All’ 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 Donald Trump against the American flag, with two swastika-printed buttons over his eyes and the words ‘God Save President Trump’ contrasted against ‘God Save Us All’ above and below the portrait. Printed onto hand-distressed, off-white paper, the piece has a distinctly retro feel about it: a chilling reminder of 2017’s political regressions.
Please note that these prints are still in production, with dispatch estimated around 15th of May.
