Cake is a female street artist and painter working and living in Brooklyn, New York. Cake uses anatomy to describe the intricate relationship structures humans have with themselves and others. “I frequently take from the pool of human suffering for subject matter and inspiration. People have an innate ability to disconnect from self, nature and purpose. This disconnection will somehow show up in their faces, bodies and gestures. I prefer to make work describing those results. Through my work I hope to create channels with which to communicate and emphasize with other people as a way to connect in an authentic way.” Cake received her MFA at Parsons School of Design in 2007 and received her BFA in painting at the Pratt Institute in 2003.
