Pure Evil In The Press & On The Streets

Pure Evil gave readers a rare insight into the complex world of Graffiti in a recent interview with The Times newspaper. The artist explained the unspoken code of conduct present on the streets and voiced his opinion on the breach of etiquette when pieces of Banksy’s work had been painted over by rivals. He also explained the order of importance in Street Art with simpler tags at the bottom, 2 colour ‘throw ups’ in the middle and larger more detailed pieces at the top of the graffiti pyramid.

Also hot off the press... Pure Evil’s image of a hooded character stealing one of the Olympic rings emerged during the London 2012 games and has just been used as the cover artwork for Jules Boykoff’s new book ‘Activism and the Olympics’! The book, which is released later this month, examines how anti-Olympic activists deployed a range of approaches in order to challenge the Olympic machine.

As well as book covers and interviews in the national press, Pure Evil has been out leaving his own mark on the streets. The artist has just painted a fresh mural on a wall of the new East Dulwich Picture House in South London. Fittingly he sprayed painted stencilled portraits of bygone film stars with Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren, Marilyn Monroe and Marlene Dietrich all featuring on a background made up of his signature multi-coloured vampire bunnies. Pure Evil is clearly the man of the moment!
