Pure Evil Bunny Tag Canvas - Hazel
This is a spray paint bunny Tag on canvas ...
60 x 60cm primed canvas
Pure Evil’s tag of a vampire bunny rabbit was borne from the artist's feeling of remorse after shooting a rabbit in the countryside as a youth. It’s a simple character and has recently popped up in Mexico City, Mongolia, Rome, Paris and Sri Lanka.
Having Pure Evil as a nickname is a bit of a joke, Charley confesses, but it's a license to have fun with dark imagery. It reflects the darkness that's in the world right now. You can't just ignore it and do a nice picture of a unicorn. Unless it's a unicorn with a rocket launcher on its head.
HAZEL : The main character. He is initially the only rabbit who trusts his brother Fiver. He becomes the leader of the rabbits when they reach Watership Down, with a particular talent at bringing out the best in his followers and inspiring their loyalty. He is thought dead when he is shot during the raid on Nuthanger Farm, but Fiver and Blackberry save him. In the epilogue of the novel and the 1978 feature film, Hazel, now an aged rabbit, is invited by El-ahrairah to join his Owsla (a special group of clever rabbits dedicated to protecting their Chief Rabbit and his warren), to which Hazel accepts.
