Several Pure Evil artworks feature at Urban Frame: Mutiny in Colour

Mutiny in Colour Art Exhibition

Summer exhibition across three Suffolk towns 3 Jun – 1 Oct

It follows the huge success of the Moments exhibition at Moyse’s Hall Museum in Bury St Edmunds in 2021, which attracted nearly 25,000 visitors, and will be supported by a number of high-profile events and community projects. Just five Pure Evil pieces were shown at Moments, but as he proved to be one of the most popular artists, a much larger display of his work will be shown at Mutiny in Colour.
