Pure Evil’s striking Arthur Miller’s Nightmare – Pink refers to Monroe’s turbulent marriage to playwright Arthur Miller, for whom she converted to Judaism. Their marriage, her third, ended in divorce in 1961 after less than five years. The bold print is a subversive reworking of Andy Warhol’s 1960s iconic portrait and is available 3 different colour ways.
Also new to the site is Dirty Sexy Marilyn No.1 by Ben Allen a silkscreen limited edition with enamel finish. Adorned with the stars and stripes, this portrait paints Monroe as synonymous with American culture but points to her fascinating paradoxes; sexual but innocent, vulnerable but also driven and calculating, a figure loved by the establishment but ultimately anarchic.
