A piece of street art by the artist Bambi has mysteriously appeared on Kopykat's outside wall. It is certainly stopping passers by in their tracks as they admire the work of art and hopefully it gets Kopykat noticed as well! Nowadays a lot of people visit Shoreditch for the art, a Banksy is across the road from Bambi's work, so there is plenty to see in the area and guided tours are a daily occurence. Bambi first came to prominence with a striking image of Amy Winehouse on a Camden Town doorway. A listers are now queuing to buy her work with Rihanna, Robbie Williams, Brad Pitt and Angelina having commissioned pieces by her. Bambi wants to stay hidden and keep her identity a secret. Good luck we say to her and keep up the good work!
Shoreditch has certainly become a lot more colourful over the years with lots of graffiti artists plying their trade. The graffiti shown is just along on the line from our own railway arches. One of our favourites is Bambi.
The Rivington Street Festival in Shoreditch took place last week and it appeared that a good day was had by all. This is the 2nd year of the festival so it will hopefully be an annual event from now on. Kopykat's yard was used for a bar area with a DJ. A large bottle of Desperado beer also found its way into the yard.
