He was responsible for the classic Guns Of Brixton bassline and now the Clash bassist has been immortalised in a new limited edition artwork – The Guns Of Brixton (Paul Simonon) limited edition print by Obey.
Obey is, of course, Shepard Fairey and this is unmistakably his artwork, based on an original Clash-era photo by Kate Simon. The print is sized at 18 x 24 inches, signed by both Shepard Fairey and Kate Simon and limited to 450.
Just one per household allowed to be bought, you can secure one online for just $75.
