LIZ TAYLOR CLASSIC – National velvet – Pure Evil


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 artists feeling of remorse after shoot a rabbit in the countryside as a youth.

Charley explains, “I’ve always regretted this terrible deed and the idea is that the rabbit is coming back to haunt me”. He also explains the economy is such a beautifully symbol, “The great thing is, you can do it in about five seconds. If you are running through the streets of Moscow at night you can just do a quick bunny on the side of a hoarding and run away”.

He is also the son of the late Welsh painter John Uzzell Edwards. “Having Pure Evil as a nickname is a bit of a joke,” Charley confesses,”but it’s a license to have fun with dark imagery. It reflects the darkness that’s in the world right now. You can’t just ignore it and do a nice picture of a unicorn. Unless it’s a unicorn with a rocket launcher on its head.”
