The Fairtrade Mad Artist Tea Party opened at London’s Future Gallery over this bank holiday weekend to the delight of eager edible art fans. The show really did pull in quite a crowd, and it’s no surprise considering the fun original concept and the talent involved including Pete Fowler, Stuart Semple, Bompas and Parr, Jon Burgerman and Peat Wollaeger (stenSOUL).
