Inspired by hip hop: Thabiso Radebe illustrates the hustle of the youth

Thabiso Radebe is a graphic design student at the Durban University of Technology, who illustrates the “hustle of youth”. His colourful portraits of South African hip hop artists feature the likes of Emtee, Nasty C, Priddy Ugly and Riky Rick. He was inspired to practice his craft and share his work on Instagram after following illustrators on social media and witnessing their growing talents. 

“My subjects are based on influential South African hip hop figures who are dominating the genre and those who are upcoming and inspiring younger generations to reach for the stars. The subjects I choose are those that inspire the youth.”
