Smiling Jackie JFK's Nightmare Soft Blue

With a moniker like Pure Evil, it’s little surprise the internationally-renowned street artist is best known for his Nightmare Series – a selection of portraits of iconic and doomed celebrities, each shedding a tear as they face their own nightmare. The collection, reminiscent of Warhol’s famous screenprints, is a reflection on the darker side of celebrity worship.

Smiling Jackie depicts Jackie Kennedy. The infinitely stylish First Lady went through a lot in life; the loss of children, rumours of adultery and, of course, the assassination of her husband, JFK. For this piece, Pure Evil has chosen an image from a more positive era of her life, when JFK was running for president and she had just given birth to her second child, John Jr.

This silkscreen print is from a limited edition of 100, signed by the artist.

    About the artist
    +

    Charles Uzzell Edwards adopted his dramatic moniker, Pure Evil, after shooting a rabbit when he was ten years old and feeling overcome with guilt. Macabre and hyperbolic, Uzzell’s nickname has informed his aesthetic ever since, from his early graffiti-tag bunnies to his tragic celebrity iconography, always using his art to reflect the darkness of the contemporary world. 

    Heavily influenced by the Pop Art movement, Pure Evil is known for his Nightmare Series: doomed female icons, from Marilyn Monroe to Sharon Tate, are portrayed in Pop print colours, while a single, heavy tear (the artist’s trademark symbol) drips down their fated faces. A comment on the ills of celebrity culture, and the brutal realities of fandom and adulation, the instantly recognisable Nightmare Series has earned Pure Evil a well-deserved following in both Street and Contemporary Art circles.
