‘Liz Loves Richard - Red’ is a Silkscreen Print by acclaimed contemporary artist Pure Evil. Printed onto 330gsm Fedrigoni Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 100 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
With a moniker like Pure Evil, it’s no wonder the street artist extraordinaire revels in a series of ‘Nightmare’ prints. Pure Evil may have come a long way from vampire-toothed bunnies, scrawled onto city walls, but his work continues to live up to iconic expectations. Burning the torch lit by Warhol, Pure Evil trails the blaze of Pop Art into the twenty-first century, creating an all-new range of celebrity portraits, each one oozing a black tear as they face their own nightmare.
For ‘Liz Loves Richard - Red’, Pure Evil takes the iconic Elizabeth Taylor as his muse - with reference to her one-time husband Richard Burton. Against a cherry-red background, Liz is portrayed in classic pop tones, minimally adorned with charcoal-grey, bobbed hair, lustrous lips in scarlet-gloss - oh, and that iconic teardrop - for a twist of pure genius.
