Like Fat Kid Love Cake


Artist Beccy McCray combines two of her favorite things into a series of baketivism posters featuring hip hop lyrics in beautifully scripted icing. As the artist puts it, "Imagine if your nan, who was heavily influenced by 80s and 90s hip hop, tried to make you a really nice cake… Progressive political activists have carried a torch for hip-hop since its earliest days in the 1970s. The voiceless had pushed their way onto the world's stage, rapping about their experiences...Today, all over the world, traditional craft-forms such as cake-making are being radicalised in a similar way and revived in response to the near collapse of accelerated consumer capitalism witnessed in 2008. As a result of being broke and disillusioned we have become more political, more resourceful, and more creative."
