Faith47

Faith47 is a street-and studio-based artist in Cape Town, South Africa. Her murals can be found in many cities in Europe, the USA and South Africa. Using a wide range of media, including graphite, spray paint, oil paint, ink, photography and collage, her approach is explorative and substrate appropriate – from found and rescued objects, to time-layered and history-textured city walls and their accretions, to studio prepared canvas and wood.
