Bumblebee has been working on lots of new projects around the city so this week Freeway Editions is featuring Bumblebee's prints as our product of the week.
Bumblebeelovesyou's art often speaks to a specific public with subjects of innocence, coming of age, and transition. These themes are combined with a color palette of yellow and black to create an iconic and evocative style.
The work of Bumblebee has merged the ideas of stenciled street art, mural making, and appropriation to create an unique visual dialogue between the art of urban Los Angeles and the art found in the city’s gallery spaces. Bumblebeehas found a way to organize these ideas of metropolitan and prescribed art to create sculptures, prints, and paintings that speak to socio-political issues such as youth homelessness and broader themes of childhood, development, and city life. However, no matter what the overarching theme may be, the ultimate message is always “Bumblebee loves you”.
Somewhere I'd Rather Bee Edition 8 of 10 is part of the unique set of hand-painted stencil prints from urban contemporary artist BumbleBeeLovesYou. This is a special hand-cut set, with one of BumbleBeeLovesYou’s signature images. Stenciled spray paint on 640gsm cotton handmade paper + UV protective finish. This process allows the artist to handle each edition one by one, which makes every piece in a set very unique and authentic. Each edition is signed and numbered by the artist.
