Charles Uzzell Edwards is a graffiti and street artist, better known by his alias Pure Evil. Born in South Wales, he is the son of late Welsh painter John Uzzell Edwards.
After completing his studies in fashion and graphics in London, he moved to California’s West Coast where he worked as a designer for clothing label Anarchic Adjustment. It was during this time his enthusiasm for street art grew, and after returning to London, he began painting fanged bunny rabbits.
As Pure Evil, he has developed a unique style of painting, which taps into darkness in the world right now. He utilises a range of media including spray paint, pastels, glow in the dark and phosphorous paint, acrylics, neon, steel, stencils, tempera paint and markers, as well as various methods of screen printing.
He has exhibited globally, with notable solo shows held at the VS Gallery in Melbourne, Australia, Korsbarsgarden in Gotland, Sweden and Cindy Lisica Gallery in Texas, USA. He also produces electronic music, regularly gives workshops and participates in lectures about street art.
Charles Uzzell Edwards lives and works in London, England.
