A new work by world-renowned street artist Bambi has been appeared on the streets of London. The piece, entitled Lie Lie Land, features a dancing Theresa May and Donald Trump in the iconic pose made famous by Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling in the Oscar-nominated film La La Land. It can be found at the corner of 40 Cross St and Shillingford Street, London N1 2BA.
Speaking about the work, artist Bambi says: “Lie Lie Land is a parody of the blockbuster Hollywood movie La La Land. The original film poster for La La Land is pasted everywhere in London – on buses on bus-stops on billboards, a happy couple dancing without a care in the world. The film was released during a dark political time in our world when our government lied about trident and literally held hands with Donald Trump.”
Often dubbed “the female Banksy”, Bambi is the pseudonym of a contemporary British street artist. Her works focuses on contemporary female identity and its relationship to patriarchal culture. This is the first street piece unveiled by the artist in recent months, and is the first of a series of works she has planned for 2017.
Known for her stencilled graffiti works, Bambi creates street art to offer social commentary and address political concerns, often through the depiction of notable contemporary figures, including Ai Wei Wei, David Beckham, and Boris Johnson as Winston Churchill. She is collected by a number of celebrity fans, including Rhianna, Brad Pitt and Adele.
