Using a different approach, I included the full image with only a section that shows the graphic colours. I am really pleased how these turned out as I like the combination. The contrast in colours grabs my eyes, along with the details of the building. The coloured shapes is another way that emphasised this
Roger Peet displays how white people see the world. The concept of his art, is to show what the western culture are forgetting when they decide to appropriate elements. Peet created ‘whiteness goggles’ for the audience to wear. Once put on, the painful image of what people of colour have suffered in the background fades away.
At this point, the only elements that should be kept is the the contrast in colours. But the images and composition need to be improved. The images used in the collage needs to be put together so they create one image.
During this project, I wanted to explore collaging and I began with combining digital images with illustrations. The main idea is take figures from the western culture and illustrate hairstyle they class as ‘urban’ use for fashion shoots.
These hairstyles they claim to be ‘urban’ originate from the black culture, which would also be seen as ghetto if worn by the original culture.
