ABOUT THE ARTIST Mimmo Rotella (Catanzaro, Italy, 1918 - Milan, Italy, 2006) was an Italian artist who focused his work in painting and collage fundamentally. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples after leaving the army in 1944. A year later, just after the war, he moves to Rome where he comes into contact with avant-garde. There he developed a form of pictorial expression of neo-geometric nature. In 1949 Rotella creates a method called expression epilastic, a mixture consisting of words with sounds and onomatopoeias. In 1951 he traveled to Paris and participated in the Hall of the New Realists. He also travels to America where he created a large mural and continued working on his phonetic poems at Harvard University and at the Library of Congress in Washington. There he met artists like Rauschenberg, Oldenburg, Yves Klein, Pollock and Twombly. After returning to Rome in 1953 he cuts his production since he thinks there is nothing new to do in art. However, he discovers a new element of artistic expression, the billboard. Rotella start making compositions with pieces of posters that he tears of the street walls, giving rise to decollage, opposed to Cubist collage, which makes up so Dada. These works can be understood as a fusion between the Neo Dada and Pop Art.

Hand signed in pencil by Pure Evil and numbered of an edition limited to 100 copies. ABOUT THE ARTIST Charles Uzzell-Edwards is the real name of the man behind Pure Evil's pseudonym. Born in South Wales in the year of 1968 and son of the abstraction painter John Uzzell-Edwards, arts and creativity have always been around in his life. At the beginning of the 90's he left the United Kingdom to live in the United States for a few years, specifically, in San Francisco. Influenced by the American west coast's trends of the moment, he began to have a deeper interest for the urban culture of skate, graffiti and electronic music. By then, Pure Evil began working for the clothing brand Anarchic Adjustment, giving the first steps into the world of graphic design and stencil. As a multi talented artist, very involved into the electronic music scene, Pure Evil left San Francisco to spend four years in Berlin, working for a music production company named FAX. After this time, he missed London very much and decided to go back there. Once settled back in the English capital, first Pure Evil graffitis are seen on the streets. The artist meets the people involved with Banksy...
