Pure Evil – Artist Talk

Pure Evil will be hosting a talk and question and answer session, there will be a welcome drink and entry into Urban where you will be able to view several works by the artist.
Charles Uzzell Edwards a.k.a. PURE EVIL grew up in South Wales. He spent his teenage years customising his own clothes and this love of urban street style led him to do fashion degree in London where he earned a bit of a reputation as a troublemaker. After the Poll Tax Riots in Trafalgar Square, he decided to leave Thatcherite London for a two week trip to California, which ended up being a 10-year stay in San Francisco.
He became one of the designers for streetwear clothing line ‘ANARCHIC ADJUSTMENT’ and immersed himself in the music scene out there. It seemed a British invasion of artists, musicians and DJ’s had hit the West Coast like a tsunami, moving there to avoid the criminal justice bill, throwing parties under full moons on Californian beaches, making electronic music and streetwear clothing for ravers, skateboarders and Silicon Valley tech guru’s.
