Africa Art | African Art by Chris Saunders

Chris Saunders is a rising star in the photography scene in the African art world. Dj Invizable showcases the explosion of the Southern African music scene, and how it has evolved over the years. Saunders believes that music reflects the richness of the soul of South Africa: it is the country’s way of telling their stories. Southern African musicians have long been creating multicultural dreamscapes of their home, which is captured in this image. In this piece of African art by Saunders, Dj Invizable is wearing a shiny, futuristic suit and helmet, but keeps his traditional ‘mokorotlo’ (hat), showing how African music is both embracing modern ways but keeping true to its traditional roots.
