  • About the artwork

    This painting was created by pure evil painting his iconic fanged bunny tags all over canvas then painted on top his also internationally known nightmare series on top of which his chosen subject was Marilyn Monroe. The beautiful thing about this is the clash in mediums from which the inks used on the bunny tags show through.

    Pure Evil explains that a chance email from a Chinese “copy village” gave impetus to his “Nightmare Series.” The village offered, via email, a list of artists it could reproduce, including three Andy Warhol paintings. The idea of Warhol’s entire artistic output distilled right down to three small 64 x64 pixel thumbnails of Jackie Kennedy, Liz Taylor and an Electric Chair became the inspiration for these doomed and dripping celebrity portraits. Why are they crying? “Its an illustration of the heartbreak and sadness we have all experienced in relationships in the past.”

Pure Evil

Born in: 1968

United Kingdom

Charles Uzzell-Edwards is a graffiti and street artist known better known by the cheeky moniker ‘Pure Evil’. His tag of a vampire bunny rabbit was bore from the artist's feeling of remorse after he shot a rabbit in the countryside as a youth.

Pure Evil was born in South Wales and studied fashion and graphics in London. After finishing he went to live in California to avoid the ruins of Thatcher’s Britain. In the early 90’s he was living on the West Coast and working as one of the designers for a clothing label called Anarchic Adjustment with Alan Brown and Nick Philip. He was producing screen-printed t-shirt graphics and became involved in the electronic music scene in San Francisco. As a result he attended many raves and ingested a lot of weapon grade psychedelics.
