Pure Evil was born as Charles Uzzell Edwards in South Wales, in 1968. He grew up in an artistic household, with his father being an artist, demonstrating a range of influences from cubism to minimalism, from Matisse to Chagall. In the 1990’s Edwards went to San Francisco where he began working as a designer for a clothing label. It was here that he produced many a t-shirt design whilst of course, discovering Street art.
Inspired by the initial influence of Twist and Reminisce, with a dose of skate culture thrown in, Pure Evil graced freeways with “Dump Bush” slogans and tagged gun stores as “Murderers.” But there was one image he couldn’t fulfill with graffiti or sketches–Pure Evil longed for “dirty London and so returned home to London and began spraying his signature tag of rabbit with large fangs.
