Dame Shirley Veronica Bassey, DBE (Born 8 January 1937) is a Welsh 'there's lovely' singer whose career began in the mid-1950s, best known both for her powerful voice and for recording the theme songs to the  Bond films Goldfinger (1964), Diamonds Are Forever (1971), and Moonraker (1979). In January 1959, Bassey became the first Welsh person to gain a No. 1 single.[5]

In 2000, Bassey was appointed a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) for services to the performing arts. In 1977 she received the Brit Award for Best British Female Solo Artist in the previous 25 years. Bassey is considered one of the most popular female vocalists in Britain during the second half of the 20th century, celebrated in this limited edition of 50 Pop Art Disruptive print. Signed by the Artist Jim Wheat with his picture duplicated across four squares, each one washed with a neon colour in the style of Pop Art portraiture, and subtly emblazoned with the dollar sign. Focusing the trope of money through people, places, and occasions, Dollarsandart's celebrity prints comment on the tense relationship between fame and finance in contemporary culture.
