Bumblebee's stencil work on pieces of wood often portrays sad-looking children who have an air of loneliness or abandonment about them. However, a harmless bumblebee makes an effort to keep them company and see them through. The Los Angeles-based artist is also known for various street interventions, such as leaving his mark in decommissioned telephone booths to make the connection between the dwindling bee population and the increased use of cell phones.
Bed Bugs is the first solo exhibition of work by Bumblebee and takes place October 9 - 10, 2010 at Beyond Eden at LA Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Park.
