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?

The absolute best accessory I’ve worn this year has been my Phosphor Appear crystal watch. Typically, I am not a ‘watch person‘. With my Blackberry almost permanently glued to my hand, it is as good a time-teller as anything else.

But Phosphor watches aren’t just timepieces.

The on-trend enlarged face is overloaded with Swarovski crystals. Thanks to mini rotors, even the time itself is crystallized. With extremely advanced technology, the watch emits an electromagnetic field that shifts the position of the crystals as time goes on. It is mesmerizing.

As you can see in the video below, there are also three modes of the watch. Time mode – featuring a twelve hour display, Seconds mode – a ‘party pleaser’ if you will, and Off mode – which shows an entire screen of crystals.

And since the watch has far exceeded my expectations, I have teamed up with Phosphor to give one away!
