Pure Evil has described his artistic style as “a 5 year old kid on a sugar rush with a fistful of crayons scribbling on the white walls of contemporary art”. Who wouldn’t want a piece of that hanging in their home? (No-one. That is the answer.)

Thankfully, we have teamed up with the guys at artrepublic art prints (the kings of modern art prints) to bring you your own slice of Evil in the form of a Limited Edition Marlene Dietrich Signed Silkscreen (one of only 100, value of £150)!

Can you describe your creative process?
Pure Evil: I get my goggles on and then my mask on and then I go down into the studio and look for the right 3 stencils…then check to see how my levels of paint are… then swear because I’m missing one of them. Then find a different colour that’ll do. Then I spray the first layer, go for a beer to let the paint fumes settle and the paint dry..Then I spray the second layer, go for a beer to let the paint fumes settle and the paint dry..then spray the final layer and then the masterpiece is ready. Then I photograph it, send the photograph to my dealer and then he wires me the money. It’s a tough life being an artist, it is HELL.

When did you decide you wanted to be a professional artist?
Pure Evil: When I sold a painting to Ron Weasley from Harry Potter for £20,000

havaianas winner
The time is nigh, my fashion bambinos! Last month’s Havaianas competition was met with such a fantastic response that it has taken over two weeks for the Havaianas team and I to decide on a winner. (If that is your entry, above, start celebrating!) Let’s remind ourselves what was up for grabs…

TWO PAIRS of Havaianas sandals and your competition picture (see below!) on the Havaianas European official blog, Havaianas European official Facebook page, and!

To enter:
Send me an e-mail (lela at lelalondon DOT com) with a photo or mood board of the best ‘look’ you would choose to wear with Havaianas sandals.

I loved all of the entries and was truly overwhelmed by the beauty of everyone who submitted a Street Style shot (see two of my favourites, below)! When it came to decision time, both the Havaianas team and I were blown away by the style savvy and attention to detail from Elle Delfine‘s Havaianas mood board. Blog loyalty points abound, as she even included my favourite accessory – the Phosphor crystal watch!

Congratulations, Elle! If you would like to pick three pairs of shoes from the flip flop, espadrile and sandals collection at the Havaianas store , simply e-mail your colour preferences to me along with your shoe size and postal address. We will get your selection sent out to you at soon as possible!
