Coinciding with the opening of the 57th Venice Biennale, the acclaimed street artist Bambi will unveil her first Italian show in the watery city of Venice.

Back in February, Bambi caused quite a sensation with her politicised mural in North London that took the La La Land film poster as inspiration but replaced Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling with a dancing Theresa May and Donald Trump.

Now, the British street artist will open her first Italian show at the Venice in a Bottle Gallery on May 9 with a selection of new work inspired by climate change. Always keen to highlight both political and social injustices, Bambi, who has long been an environmentalist, has created works around the subject that is so close to actor Leonardo DiCaprio’s heart.

She will also take the opportunity to release the first limited-edition prints of her now seminal work, Lie Lie Land at the gallery on May 11. The hand-pulled silkscreen prints will come in a variety of nine colours including bright pink, orange and pea green.
