SCOTT HOVE. The artist behind Cakeland and "The Beauty War," has been doing fully immersive cake themed art installations since 2005.
Hove's works isn't limited to one trade, but uses a variety of media, from sculptural installations to painting, but the cakes are formed using shapeable polyurethane foam and plywood. They are frosted with a variety of acrylic media and accessorized with fake fruit and other objects found in stores or on the street. The materials and techniques borrow from traditional and decorative arts and craft to render the oftentimes jarring objects and fantasy installations. His co-opting of kitsch is elevated through satire, allowing him to integrate topical political and social issues as textual messages in a thought-provoking rather than offensive manner.
