Isaac Zavale | Khabazela Fried Chicken


by Isaac Zavale
South Africa

About this work:
Khabazela fried chicken is about how the international markets take over the world and how the South African black communities consume KFC food as the success meal after a monthly payment from the hard working black man, who tries to show love and happiness at home by bringing KFC for joy or he can’t afford the best meal. which normally happensin the townships.
On the work itself I changed the Kentucky Chicken into a Zulu black male to portray how black people consume KFC as a success meal or how we've been told it is.
