Street artist Pure Evil is showing some of his latest work in this solo show at the Sheffield design studio and gallery space.

Pure Evil is the alias of internationally-renowned Welsh artist Charles Uzzell Edwards, who often uses his art to commentate on popular culture.

His signature fanged bunny logo has been seen on streets around the world, and his work has also been in galleries worldwide.

After studying graphics and fashion in London, Charles was drawn to California’s West Coast in the 1990s and worked for clothing label Anarchic Adjustment.

He also got involved in the rave scene around San Fransisco and recorded electronic music for ambient label FAX.

He discovered street art on his US travels and started to create it himself before heading back to London around 2000.

He now has a gallery and music studio in London’s East End.

He appeared on TV show The Apprentice in 2012, when two of the competitors had to make a business pitch to him.

All the works on show are new and are for sale.

The show is the latest in a series featuring top contemporary artists, including Dan Baldwin, Paul Carruthers and Sir Peter Blake.

Over at the new space Krynkl on Kelham Island, Canadian/Finnish artist FUCCI will be showing his cartoonesque work from November 10 to December 7.

Hollywood Vampires is at 99 Mary Street from October 21 to November 17. Website: 99 St Mary St
