In 1990 Charley Uzzell-Edwards aka Pure Evil, left the ruins of Thatcher's Britain for a new life in California and was heavily influenced by West Coast Graffiti artists and returned to London 10 years later. Pure Evil explains that a chance email from a Chinese "copy village' gave impetus to his "Nightmare Series". The village offered, via email, a list of artists it could reproduce including three Andy Warhol paintings. The idea of Warhol's entire artistic output distilled right down to three small 64 x 64 pixel thumbnails became the inspiration for these doomed and dripping celebrity portraits.
