Artist Turns Hateful Graffiti Into Enticing Food Drawings

Italian street artist Pier Paolo Spinazzi, aka CIBO, fights fascism with cans of spray paint, transforming hateful graffiti into enticing images of food.

CIBO (a word that means “food” in Italian) founded this mission in 2008 and has been going non-stop ever since. CIBO’s strong beliefs, positive attitude, and immense talent allows him to fight the good fight every day in his own city, despite (or because of) the haters.

CIBO (Italian for food) is a street art project born around 2008 with the purpose to fight rage and vandalism with tasty drawings. Every day democracy is defended, not with wars! We must not leave a voice to hatred, not even in these small corners of the city.
