African Gothic


The hardest part of this whole process isn’t about coming up with the designs, it’s about coming up with the post to go along with it. So this time I invited a friend, @breadboo, to help. Here’s what she said;

“Of the American Gothic, Grant Wood said he decided to paint the house with “the kind of people I fancied should live in that house”…

The African Gothic here is with the kind of people that live in the African Hut under the African Sun.

The spray can continues the tale of ChilliMango’s fascination with African Culture/Tradition’s coexistence with Technology/Modernity.”

Thanks @breadboo.

My bit (which hopefully doesn’t suck too much): I guess if you know the American Gothic, then I don’t really need to explain what inspired this design. Initially, the spray can was meant to be a spear but that would’ve been the cliché of the century don’t you think? No? Oh well…

The design..
