Charles Uzzell-Edwards is a graffiti artist known by the moniker "Pure Evil". He is the son of Welsh painter John Uzzell Edwards. Charley confesses that "Having Pure Evil as a moniker is a bit of a laugh, but it has been a license to have some fun with darker imagery. It also reflects the darkness that is in the world in the present day. You can not just ignore it and do cheerful nice pictures of unicorns. Unless of course it is a unicorn that has a rocket launcher on top of its head."
Daring and dynamic, Street Art has roots in a controversial past. Long-considered vandalism, it was during the 1970s and 1980s that artists including Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring revolutionized the aesthetic, bringing their individual styles to a fine art audience and leading the way for the next generation of artists that includes the likes of Barry McGee, Invader, Mr. Brainwash, Banksy, and Brazilian twins Os Gemeos.
