About Pure Evil:


Somewhere between the 1535 execution of Sir Thomas More and the year 2000, Charles Uzzell Edwards became the street artist known as Pure Evil. Pure Evil is mostly known for his fanged bunnies and Warhol-esque portraiture. A child of contemporary London and Silicon Valley era San Francisco, his art of primarily modern icons expresses both biographical signature and western culture critique.


Pure Evil started out by painting his strange fanged bunny rabbits anywhere and everywhere, and garnered attention for this iconic character. His tag of a vampire bunny rabbit was born from the artist's feeling of remorse after he shot a rabbit in the countryside as a youth. By developing his style of painting, his simple vision of the dark side aided the creation of his new works. Pure Evil fell in with the people behind Banksy’s Santa's Ghetto and started producing dark new prints and artwork primarily based on iconic portraiture. Pure Evil has exhibited worldwide in China, Russia, Mongolia, Brazil, USA and all over Europe.
