The Bride Series
Jennifer Caviola CAKE



Jennifer Caviola, aka "Cake" is a fine artist that focuses on public space as platform to express her support of all women with a voice of solidarity. Communicating through portraiture, women's curves become sharp lines that in an architectural sense, propel a feeling of strength, power and vulnerability.

Cake found great aesthetic and spiritual beauty in the graffiti and street art surfacing around her. After years of being a silent and grateful witness to it, she became an active participant in the street art culture of New York in 2007. “Putting artwork out in the public sphere is a very fulfilling part of my practice,” she says. Surfaces and context of environment are all considered when she’s creating whether it’s in the studio or out in the wild.

This particular volume of paintings: The Bride Series, is a result of a lost marriage, which left her wondering who she was and what she could do to reclaim herself.  “I am no longer a wife, but I know I am a painter, a woman, a friend, a daughter and a sister. I understood, slowly, that I was disconnected from my source long before my marriage broke, and so the loss became a messenger of sorts, to tell me things weren't working and it was time for some surrender, time for some acceptance and time to shut up and listen a bit.”  Driven by these questions of the unknown and known, Cake painted every day into the night for five months straight until the series was finished, and each Bride carried her closer to a healed heart. “They carried me, they kept me safe and they gave me myself back again.”

Caviola has a BFA in Painting from Pratt Institute and a MFA in Fine Arts from the Parsons School of Design. She has been featured in the Huffington Post,  Complex Magazine, Vogue and High Fructose Mag just to name a few. She was recently featured at a recent panel discussion on Street Art at The Brooklyn Museum for her mural in the Bowery that she made in conjunction with FAB NYC and Many Project. The artist resides and works in Brooklyn, New York.

A Human Race
Zero Cents

Race is something that bonds but also has the power to shatter–there is only one race that unites us all and that is under the title Human. What does it mean to be human?

We are all born into some kind of race whether we realize it or not. Before we know it we are clawing our way through what we call life. It’s a constant struggle to make it to the front only to eventually fall behind either by fatigue, injury or perhaps because you were paid. This thing extends to every aspect of life whether it’s a race to the bathroom or to find that one true love. This competition is even more present in these accelerated times where there is a constant need for the next big thing. To be caught up in this race–is this what makes us human?

Zero Cents (b.1986) is an American-born Israeli-based artist living and working in Tel Aviv. For the past 9 years, the artist has been working both in studio and on the streets, painting murals and creating site-specific installations. The artist’s work deals with observations on people surrounding him: the lovers and fighters, the party-ers, the thinkers, the dancers and the damned.

Through his work, the artist documents the energy the human race creates, the wisdom, morals, values (or the lack of them) that they pass on. While conducting this research, he communicates the subjects’ movement and energy on a variety of surfaces–from found wood to city walls–using various mediums and techniques without judgment. Using these components as a metaphor for forgiveness, Zero Cents shows the human race as it is, in the most authentic and honest way he feels possible.

Zero Cents has exhibited in group shows around the world and solo exhibitions in Tel Aviv. A Human Race at Anno Domini is his first solo exhibition abroad.
