This product is currently sold out.
I have been on many PURE EVIL PICKERS trip across the USA, visiting the following cities;
Austin TX - Denver CO - Albuquerque NM - Sedona AZ - Las Vegas NV - Death Valley CA - Zabriskie Point CA - Bakersfield CA - Oakland, CA
Now I’m starting to hit up different antique fairs and yards in the UK.
Along the way I found 'rusty gold', old porcelain and enamel signs and weird cool shit , and I'm starting to paint these signs with my iconic 'Nightmare Series'..
Each piece is an unique work of art...

One of the most evocative—and controversial—bits of scar tissue from World War II is found in the Bundestag itself, the home of Germany’s parliament, where some of the walls are still covered with graffiti left over from the Soviet takeover.
The Reichstag (as the parliamentary building was then known) was a highly prized target by Joseph Stalin for its symbolic importance. Interestingly, while the Soviets thought of the Reichstag as “Hitler’s Lair” it was actually anything but—the German dictator loathed the Parliament and had never given a single speech there. Regardless, when the Soviets finally gained control of the building on April 2, 1945 the first thing they did was stage a photo op as a triumphant Hammer & Sickle flag was planted on the roof.
