Bambi is the pseudonym of a contemporary British street artist known for her stenciled graffiti works. Bambi employs representational imagery to offer social commentary and address political concerns, she often uses the depiction of notable contemporary figures such as artist Ai Weiwei, the late British singer Amy Winehouse ,or football star David Beckham.
The artist’s work focuses on contemporary female identity and its relationship to patriarchal culture, the commodification of the art world, and political injustices. “Being an artist is about creative freedom,” she said. “I want to save the world and that’s why social commentary is always present in my work. It’s easy to live with your eyes shut but that’s not fulfilling or helpful to the world.”
Born c. 1982 in the United Kingdom, she has been an active graffiti artist in the Islington neighborhood of London since her youth. Bambi’s work is just as likely to adorn city streets as it is the walls of her celebrity collectors, which include Rhianna , Brad Pitt, and Adele.
Her works are known to have fetched upwards of £100,000.Though little is known about this anonymous artist, she graduated with an MA from Saint Martin’s College and continues to live and work in London, United Kingdom.
