Exercise 10

For this final exercise of Assignment one, the topic is South African style and subcultures. we were asked to research South African designers which have a unique South African aesthetic.

We then need to research either Kwaito, Zef, Metal, find images of objects, fashion, art, music and environment of this subculture.and finally discuss the people who practice this sub culture.

I have chosen to do the metal subculture.

A few artists I think relate to this subculture just because of the rebellion is:

People in this subculture enjoy living life on the edge, they often like listening to heavy metal music and wear dark clothing, mostly black clothing with chains or dark makeup. These people often enjoy riding motorbikes or playing guitar and are often involved in their own sort of band.
