Her Majesty Elizabeth Regina II. D*Face.

Most Excellent is the work of British Street Artist D*Face.

Here is his work depicting Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. I place these on my blog with Love to R.

As he states on his website regarding his work:

"This family of dysfunctional characters began evolve, they started to satirise and hold to ransom all that fell into their grasp – a welcome jolt of subversion in today’s media-saturated environment - the very same thing I'd grown up on. Bank notes were drawn and printed over and put into circulation for the unsuspecting to receive in their change, billboards taken over with public service announcements... I wanted to encourage people to not just to 'see', but to look at what surrounds them and their lives, reflecting our increasingly bizarre popular culture, re-thinking and reworking cultural figures and genres to comment on our ethos of conspicuous consumption. A Pandora’s box of bittersweet delights - sweet and sugary on the surface, but with an unfamiliar, uncomfortable, taste beneath."

I absolutely love the signature. In the style of Disney!
