‘Roman Polanski's Nightmare II Sharon Tate’ is an Original piece on canvas with stenciled spray paints..

With a moniker like Pure Evil, it’s no wonder the internationally acclaimed street artist extraordinaire revels in a series of ‘Nightmare’ prints. Pure Evil may have come a long way from vampire-toothed bunnies, scrawled onto city walls, but his work continues to live up to iconic expectations. Riffing off Warhol’s famous screen prints, Pure Evil trails the blaze of Pop Art into the twenty-first century, creating a new range of celebrity portraits, each one oozing a black tear as they face their own nightmare.

‘Roman Polanski’s Nightmare II Sharon Tate - Silver and Yellow’ builds upon an iconic photograph of Roman Polanski’s tragic bride, looking majestic with flowing locks of hair and chic, 60s polo-neck. In pop tones of mustard-yellow, inky black, and shimmering silver, Pure Evil has added the signature teardrop to the woman who died at hands of Manson’s evil: pure genius.

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.
