‘Framed Audrey Hepburn’ is a Silkscreen print by acclaimed contemporary artist Pure Evil. From a limited edition of 100, released as part of a portfolio set in July 2017 to great acclaim, this piece has been carefully framed. Each piece is signed and numbered on the front in silver ink.

Pure Evil has come a long way from vampire-toothed bunnies, hastily scrawled onto walls around cities at every corner of the globe, but his work continues to live up to iconic expectations. Riffing off Warhol’s famous screen prints of Marilyn Monroe, Pure Evil carries the torch of Pop Art into the twenty-first century, creating a new range of printed celebrity portraits, each one oozing a black tear as they face their own nightmare. From Monroe to Obama (and even Warhol himself!) Pure Evil has proven himself the unrivalled successor of pop portraiture.


Every print has been created in flat, poppy shades, which contrast against each other for brilliant vibrancy, and over every face Pure Evil has plastered his signature teardrop. A limited edition collection, exclusive to artrepublic, Pure Evil’s latest release is not be missed.


Framing


Each piece is individually framed in a smooth matt black box frame. The profile measures 20mm face on by 30mm deep.


The prints are individually shadow float mounted onto a white backing mount and glazed with Normal glass.


‘Shadow Floating is a method used to beautifully mount artwork onto a foam core using artcarerestore –a fully archival and reversible mount. The result is the artwork appearing to float securely and completely flat upon a backing mount board -creating a wonderful shadow around the edges of the paper. This process is of museum standard.


Please note that each frame is made by hand and will take approximately a week.




About The Artist - Pure Evil


Charles Uzzell Edwards a.k.a. PURE EVIL grew up in South Wales and was by his own account, the only new romantic in the village. He spent his teenage years customising his own clothes and experimenting with eyeliner. This love of urban street style led him to do fashion degree in London where he earned a bit of a reputation as a troublemaker.


Skateboarding was another of his loves and after the Poll Tax Riots in Trafalgar Square, he decided to leave Thatcherite London for a two week trip to California, which ended up being a 10-year stay in San Francisco. He became one of the designers for streetwear clothing line 'ANARCHIC ADJUSTMENT' and immersed himself in the music scene out there. It seemed a British invasion of artists, musicians and DJ's had hit the West Coast like a tsunami, moving there to avoid the criminal justice bill, throwing parties under full moons on Californian beaches, making electronic music and streetwear clothing for ravers, skateboarders and Silicon Valley tech guru's.

It was there that Charles started to notice the character street artwork of 'TWIST' and 'REMINISCE' and the work of other skateboard and graffiti artists. It was upon his return to London in 2000 that he hit the ground running and after a stint working at Banksy's SANTAS GHETTO Guerrilla retail show, he started stencilling and spraying his signature bunny tag around London. The character came from the guilt he felt when he shot and killed a rabbit in the countryside when he was 10.

In 2007 Charles opened Pure Evil Gallery, his first gallery in Shoreditch on Leonard Street. Six years later opened up the second, larger gallery just two doors from the original space. The galleries have been an incubator for up and coming street artists from around the world as well as being the studio for Charles' own PURE EVIL artwork. The success of his Nightmare series of dripping celebrity portraits has taken him around the world and has recently had successful shows across the USA, and in Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, France, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Brazil, Indonesia and even Mongolia.
