19 March 2013 – This week in the magazine we’ve got an exclusive interview with the street artist Bambi who’s been described as ‘The Female Banksy’. Here’s 5 things you need to know about her…
1. She’s ‘the female Banksy’
It was none other than David Dimbleby who gave her this moniker. Her graffiti technique – stencil and spray paint – is similar to Banksy as is her use of zeitgeisty subject matter (from David Beckham to Amy Winehouse) and the fact her identity is kept under wraps.
2. The celebs love her
Her artwork has been collected by Brad and Ange, Kate Moss, Harry Styles and Adele, to name a few.
3. Her artwork sells for thousands
Brad Pitt shelled out £60,000 for her Kate and Wills piece and her works have gone for anything from £30,000 to £100,000. A snip.
4. She used to be singer
Under a cloud of mystery, she reveals more about her musical past in our exclusive interview. Could ‘Saffron from Republica morphs into world class graffiti artist’ be just a dream? (Yes, clearly).
5. You can see more of her artwork…
