Simon Dixon uses classic 20th century images and icons as a base for his pop art creations, as this London Calling pop art print shows.
Of course, based on the classic Clash album cover, it keeps all of that detail, but flushes it with colour to look more like an original painting. The one pictured here is a high quality giclee numbered Pop Edition, sized at 12 x 12 inches and limited to 750 in total.
You can pick it up online for £40.
