Bambi artist’s street piece “Top Fashion Accessory 2011” was to go under the hammer at Rosebery’s auction house in West Norwood yesterday. On the lead up to the auction, the artist reportedly expressed anger saying that the street piece “is meant to be left on the street for everyone to enjoy. The street is the gallery of the public”.
Présentée outre-Manche comme le pendant féminin du très controversé Banksy, la street artist Bambivoit ses travaux exposés à la Walton Fine Arts Gallery de Londres du 12 au 30 avril. C’est d’ailleurs aux similitudes et aux dissociations thématiques et esthétiques entre l’œuvre de Bambi et celle de l’artiste de rue le plus célèbre de la planète qu’est consacrée l’exposition.
Street artist, political activist, film director, and painter Banksy needs no introduction – he’s a true legend and one of the most influential artistic personalities to have ever come out of the UK.
Bambi’s quotations and reputation within the art world have been steadily on the rise, and with A-list celebrities collectors such as Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Rihanna, Adele, Robbie Williams and Harry Styles (just to name a few) she seems to be on her way to becoming the next street art big thing.
Dubbed ‘The female Banksy’, her graffiti technique is similar to Banksy’s, as is her use of popular icons as subject matter for her artworks (from David Beckham to Amy Winehouse, from Usain Bolt to the Pope). Likewise, her identity is kept under wraps.
03.02.2013 – 16:00 – Bambi, além de um personagem da Disney, é a mais nova queridinha do graffiti. A artista é considerada a versão feminina de outro nome bem conhecido das ruas londrinas, Banksy, já que não divulga seu nome verdadeiro – nem mesmo seu rosto! – e a própria estética do trabalho dos dois é a mesma (assim como a galeria que os representa, a Walton Fine Arts). O que difere é a abordagem: enquanto ele é mais agressivo e irônico, ela é mais delicada e doce. Tipo graffiti fofinho!
URBAN NERDS – The Female Banksy?
Bambi is a female street artist growing in momentum. For over five years her reputation and work has been slowly building, her work gradually accumulating as creative stains on many a public building and wall in the Islington and Camden area of London. A London girl through and through, she was born and raised in Hoxton and is now based in Islington. Like Banksy she is a guerrilla artist: her identity is unknown. All that is known about her is that she is in her mid-thirties and is a graduate of the Central St Martins School of Art. On November 9th her first exhibition debuted at the Walton Fine Arts Gallery in London and has been extended due to popular demand. This is an immense milestone in her journey as an artist.
Walton Fine Arts, Bambi’s agent, brings you the long awaited Bambi world premier show.
Bambi’s momentum has been growing organically over the last few years. Her works going into a wide range of collections, including prominent global collectors. These, more recently, have included celebrities such as singer Robbie Williams, Adele, Rihana, and actors Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie to name but some.
