Somewhere between the 1535 execution of Sir Thomas More and the year 2000, Charles Uzzell Edwards became the street artist known as Pure Evil. It’s a pairing of an old lineage that has produced fangs bunnies and Warhol-esque portraiture famous throughout the streets and galleries of the world.
A child of Contemporary London and Silicon Valley era San Francisco, Pure Evil is also a child of his times. His art of primary modern icons expresses both biographical signature and western culture critique. His pop culture symbols are spewed, and therefore viewed, along the urban and artistic landscape from Sao Paolo to Sydney.
