Remember when President Chump and Prime Minister Theresa Maybe were caught holding hands as they took a walk together at the White House? Maybe they’d just come from dancing cheek to cheek around the Oval Office? Or at least that’s how street artist Bambi imagined the pair in her new Lie Lie Land stencil on view in Islington.
Lie Lie Land features a dancing Theresa May and Donald Trump in the pose made famous by the movie La La Land.
Says the artist about her work:
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 …
Bambi is the pseudonym of a British artist, whose work focuses on contemporary female identity and its relationship to patriarchal culture. Through her art, Bambi is keen to highlight political and social injustices. Lie Lie Land is the first street work unveiled by the artist in recent months, and is the first of a series of works she has planned for 2017.
