PURE EVIL



09 Monday 09th August 2010


Although Pure Evil now owns his own gallery in Shoreditch, it hasn't always been smooth sailing. Thrown out from the US for being a traveling artist who didn't want to pledge allegiance to a moronic president (that would be Bush by the way, in case you'd repressed all the years of the Dubya administration). Revocation of his visa sent Charley in free fall for a few months. He headed back to London, sold some of his artwork, and the rest as they say is history.

Known for his bunny rabbits – "I can do them in about five seconds" – Mr Evil is thinking about doing a huge rabbit that stretches up Westway. Collaborating with good friend and New York based street artist Specter at Westway and at the gallery, he's also looking forward to working with Axel Boid in the new year.



 

With street art, you can't get too attached to your work, since there's such a fast turnaround of art." With that in mind, P. Evil decided to get a bit more crafty, and fashioned a spray can on a pole, and tagged the roof of the Westway with a picture of Stonehenge. When I ask him if he wants me to print that, he brushes it off. Art comes and goes.

Charley's also in a band, "Rock 'n' roll is like art too." Coinciding with his shift at the Westway Shift-Work exhibition, Pure Evil and the Prehistoric Men are performing at the Pure Evil gallery on 108 Leonard St on Thursday, from 6-9pm.
