About

Ink_d gallery welcomes to Brighton the great London graffiti artist Pure Evil this month. As we unveil new originals, prints and spectacular neon art, prepare to be challenged, amused and delighted. Using dark humour and twisting symbolism to create new forms, in his new show Pure Evil looks at what lurks around the corner on the secret streets of London. The artist sheds light on the things under our noses that we never take the time to notice as we hurtle forwards into the future. To understand a bit about Pure Evil it is illuminating to know that he is a descendant of Sir Thomas More, the Lord Chancellor who wrote the controversial work Utopia and who was later beheaded by King Henry VIII. With this busy background (Sir Thomas was later canonised) it is only natural that Pure Evil should explore the darker side of the wreckage of Utopian dreams and the myth of the Apocalypse, a belief in the life-changing event that brings history with all its conflicts to an end.
