Axel Backlund

A BUNCH OF MOTHERFUCKERS is based on a Swedish subculture called ‘Raggare’, which is inspired by mid-century American ‘greasers’ with their hot rod cars and rockabilly tastes. “My work is intended to be a modernisation of the clothing, exploring the Raggare subculture and developing it, however without losing its attitude”, says Axel Backlund who also allowed influences from other related subcultures to blend in with the typical blue-collar wardrobe. Subculture-related painting techniques such as graffiti, airbrush and action painting merge in with the visual language of Raggare in prints that “sweep across the outfits, connecting garments.” The high flag with typical Raggare symbols attached to one of the looks expresses the pride of being part of this culture.
