London: Cake Britain artists rise to challenge

London: Cake Britain artists rise to challenge Participating artists who will swap palette knives to improve our palates are unveiled and their art is previewed Cake Britain, the World’s first entirely edible art exhibition, has today announced the artists who will be exhibiting their work at the event and is previewing concept sketches of the work that they will create.
 
Artist Stuart Semple allowed photography of his work as it was being created. The exhibition, which is sponsored by Tate & Lyle Sugars in support of its switch to Fairtrade, teams the UK’s most creative bakers with artists who want to create using sugar as a medium.
 
The exhibition at The Future Gallery, 5 Great Newport Street, London, runs from 27th to 29th August. Some of the UK’s most highly praised artists are swapping canvas for cake and oil paint for icing sugar during the exhibition which is being organised by The Mad Artists Tea Party.
 
They include:1 Stuart Semple (http://stuartsemple.com/),
Alex Turvey (http://www.alexturvey.com/),
David A Smith (http://www.davidasmithart.co.uk),
StenSouL (http://www.stensoul.com/),
Pete Fowler (http://monsterism.net/),
George Morton-Clark (http://www.gm-c.co.uk/)
and The Futureheads (http://www.thefutureheads.com/).
 
Their work will be turned into edible art based on the theme “fair” by contemporary food artists including Crumbs and Doilies, Lily Vanilli, The Curious Confectioner, Bompass & Parr and Bea’s Of Bloomsbury.
 
All proceeds will support the Fairtrade Foundation and two charities: Richard House and We Make Peace.
 
Tate & Lyle started moving its entire cane sugars range to Fairtrade in February 2008, which at the time was the largest ever switch to Fairtrade labelling by any major UK food or drink brand. In the first year alone, the switch created a return of at least £2 million in Fairtrade premiums for cane farmers.
 
Entry to the exhibition is free in exchange for a ‘fair’ donation.
