One can quite understand why street artist Pure Evil (Charles Uzzell-Edwards) has such a following.  His works, inspired by 60s icons and with a Warhol-esque twist and his famous tear-mark emblem explore the darker side of people, with an added dash of humour.

It is fitting that as a descendant of Sir Thomas More, who lived nearby, that Pure Evil should have this show on London’s famous King’s Road.
