Faith47

Faith47 (Cape Town, 1979) is a South African artist established at an international level, renowned for her unique artworks that combine traditional graffiti and street art.

Faith47 art: a hope for the future

Faith47 artist uses a wide range of technique, from oil and spray paint to graphite and collage, creating thought-provoking and meaningful works which take the form of metaphor and which arise from her own political and existential questions.

The artist investigates the relationship between society and its environment, as well as human feelings, dreams, memories and behaviours, all the experiences with people and places she encounters during her frequent travels that inspire her artworks. Faith47 has a deep affinity with found objects and lost places: broken-down cars and old factories, dusty side roads of lost towns or inner-city alleyways. Her creations talk about injustice, inequality and society’s failings, although the message she conveys also involves a hope for the future.
