This project explored the appropriation of Ghetto style/aesthetics and their cultural, political and historical importance to their creators, Black people. This print design was a culmination of my research into Ghetto culture. The culture is rich in it's styles and aesthetics that for so long have been a source of influence for mainstream fashion and pop culture. The design brings together some of the crucial elements of Ghetto culture to create a print that is intended to be used on fabric but is adaptable and could be used instead to reclaim a space or area, printed onto walls/paper ect. The various layers include are; photography, scans from Black beauty magazines and screen printed Leopard print.
