This street artist fights fascism with food

Food is life-changing in many ways, but none more so than in food activism. Food activism is often linked to human conduct in the production, distribution, preparation and consumption of food. But one Italian street artist has put a creative twist to food activism as we know it. For the past 10 years, Pier Paolo Spinazze – who goes by the artist name CIBO (which means food in Italian) – has travelled around northern Italy painting pictures of produce and Italian dishes on abandoned walls. Now CIBO’s using his art to fight back against the resurgence of neo-fascism and far-right ideology in Italy. He now goes around Italy replacing swastika and racial graffiti with giant paintings of pasta and cheese. We can’t think of a better use for reproductions of our Italian faves!
