"The Guns of Brixton" is a song by the British punk rock band The Clash, written by their bassist Paul Simonon. It was featured on their 1979 album, "London Calling." Paul Simonon's artwork has become iconic in its own right, as he has pursued a successful career as an artist since the dissolution of The Clash. Shepard Fairey is a well-known American street artist, graphic designer, and activist, best known for his "OBEY Giant" campaign and the iconic "Hope" poster created for Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign. Combining his own artistic style with the legacy of punk rock, Fairey has created numerous works inspired by musicians and bands. Shepard Fairey created a silkscreen print inspired by "The Guns of Brixton" and featuring Paul Simonon. In this hypothetical artwork, Fairey would likely incorporate elements of his own signature style, such as bold colors, strong lines, and thought-provoking imagery, while paying tribute to the influence of The Clash and their music. The artwork might include references to the song's lyrics or imagery from the London Calling album cover, which features a photograph of Simonon smashing his bass guitar on stage based on photo by Kate Simon.
