…Chocolate can be art?

Graffiti Chocolate

Format Magazine has an inspiring interview with Alison Nelson, the owner of Chocolate Bar and the creator of Graffiti Bars, which promise “Great Chocolate, Pure Street”. Each flavor in the series features a wrapper designed by a legendary New York City graffiti artist, such as Lady Pink, Crash, Spar One, and Blade, and a significant portion of the proceeds are going to the All Stars Project, a non-profit selected by the artists that lets underprivileged youth operate performing arts groups in Harlem, Coney Island, Bedford-Stuyvesant and the South Bronx.

The article even includes some of the artists’ responses to questions about their approach to chocolate-bar design and their take on the continued commercialization of street art. Sweet.
