Pure Evil (UK)

Born in 1968 in Wales, Charles Uzzell Edwards, a.k.a. Pure Evil, is the son of Welsh painter John Uzzell Edwards. In the early 1990s he designed for the edgy London skater-inspired streetwear label, Anarchic Adjustment. He also emerged as part of London’s electronic ambient music scene, releasing under the FAX label of Pete Namlook, under the pseudonym, Drum Machine Circle, and collaborating with several electronic musicians of the day.

Upon his return from the West Coast to London in 2001, Pure Evil took up spray-can painting with the coterie associated most famously with Banksy. He went on to produce prints privately in a shed in Wales, with which he achieved great success. This led to the opening of Pure Evil Gallery in a 19th century shop in Shoreditch, London, in 2007. He remains actively involved in the street art scene, for which he is a vocal champion.

Pure Evil uses existing popular graphic imagery. These may include complex compositions consisting of culled, soft-porn pinups from pulp-fiction thriller covers, to Chinese and Soviet era posters, appropriated and recontextualised with contemporary slogans and topical references.
