The history of art still does not abound in women’s names. Meanwhile, there are not as few artists worthy of being remembered as there are male masters, as it seems at first glance. Today the review includes a list of the most influential women on the world art scene.

The obviously unbelievable: on the list of the most important women in the art world is a street artist who hides her face. For the skill of conspiracy, Bambi has already been nicknamed “Banksy in a skirt” – in honor of the most famous street artist Banksy. Bambi, presumably 35, graduated from the famous Central Martins College and started her career at London’s Walton Fine Arts gallery, with which Jeff Koons and Banksy once collaborated. Bambi specializes in portraits of celebrities: graffiti portraits of Duchess Catherine and Prince William, Cara Delevan, I Wavey, David Beckham, and other celebrities by her are scattered all over London. Unofficially, her works are in the personal collections of Brad Pitt, Adele, and Rihanna. Relevance is an important feature of Bambi’s work, and the artist reacts to political and social developments in the world. Thus, in early 2017 on one of the streets of London appeared her work “Lee Lee Land”: in the famous “dancing” pose of the heroes of the musical “La La Land”, the artist depicted Donald Trump and the British Prime Minister Teresa Mae.
This year a large personal exhibition of Bambi was held during the 57th Venice Biennale.
