In today’s art culture, urban art is a new genre, influenced by elements and inspirations of both graffiti and street art into artworks transitioning in to the interior– becoming accessible to everyone. It’s clear to see that graffiti and street art are here to stay and have found their place. Today, pieces made by famous street artists have become status symbols among collectors.
Trinity House are excited to be handling a selection of original works by Charles Uzzell-Edwards a graffiti artist who produces Pop inspired works and street art, known by the moniker “Pure Evil”.
About the exhibition
The U.K. born and based artist’s vibrant, stenciled, spray-paint figurations riff on distinctly American iconography such as the Statue of Liberty and on Andy Warhol subjects such as Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, and Elizabeth Taylor.
Pure Evil’s path to artmaking was long and varied. As the son of Welsh painter John Uzzell Edwards, he grew up in a creative household. After studying fashion and graphics in college, he worked as a clothing designer and recorded electronic music. Pure Evil finally arrived at street art while living in California, where he honed his practice across freeways and storefronts.
The artist has since exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris, and elsewhere. Here’s a look at the rise of street art and the future of this vibrant art form.
