In celebration of Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee, punk artist Illuminati Neon has captured Queen Elizabeth II in this striking, rock and roll portrait that features vibrant neon typography and a backdrop of newspaper cuttings that chronicle headlines and events throughout her reign.
The contrast between the traditional royal and edgy punk rock imagery creates a unique and exciting artwork that celebrates important parts of our nation’s history; the royal family and the punk movement that emerged in the 1970s. It also pays homage to the existing relationship between punk and the royal family, with the artist noting that even his punk contemporaries, the Sex Pistols, wrote a song about Queen Elizabeth II in 1977. This incredible artwork then, is not just an opportunity to have and display a beautifully bold statement about two seemingly disparate elements of British culture but according to the artist, it is also an “investment in a part of our history”.
