Pure Evil

From October 2021 to February 2022, South Place will feature the iconic work of artist, Pure Evil who is showing a solo exhibition of their work.

Inspired by the golden age of cinema and glamour, Pure Evil’s Nightmare Series depicts world-famous icons such as Jackie Kennedy, Grace Jones and even Snoopy, in a vibrant Warholian style contrasted by melancholic tears that fall from the subjects’ eyes. The pieces were influenced by a collection of 1960s pop art books belonging to the artist’s father and utilise unconventional hues to convey subliminal meanings. More of Pure Evil’s work can be found online here.

The buzzing hotel is an ideal location for the exhibition, which is renowned for its impressive art collection covering each of the stylish bedrooms and communal spaces.
