'Hello Coconut' Tote Bag
An iconic piece of Siem Reap street art has been immortalised on this stylish tote bag. The original work, 'Hello Coconut' was painted in December 2018 and can be found in Coconut Alley in Kandal Village. It is the work of Charles Uzzell Edwards, a Welsh graffiti and street artist better known as PURE EVIL. Having studied fashion and graphics, he moved to San Francisco in the early 90s, working as a designer for the clothing label Anarchic Adjustments and this is where his street art began, working with Twist and Reminisce. Returning to London 10 years later, he worked with Banksy and Santa's Ghetto. He has exhibited worldwide and has his own gallery in London's Shoreditch.
