Faith47 is a self-taught artist who draws inspiration from her own intuitive political and existential questions. Her art takes on the form of metaphor. Both abstract and definitive in meaning, plucking at our heartstrings as she paints.

Faiths images thrive on broken-down cars and old factories, down dusty side roads of lost towns and inner-city alleyways. Her deep affinity with lost spaces allows her to gracefully bring attention to the most honest and humble of environments. Her interactions resonate with our fragility and our elusive relationship with dreams, memory, human interaction and urban decay. We hear in her work harmonious and sometimes dark tones echoing emotion and heartfelt intent.

Initially recognized for her unique graffiti and street art work, faith is fast establishing herself internationally, showing in galleries and participating in projects world wide. Switzerland, Sweden, Senegal, America, Brasil, Britain, China, Holland, Germany, Britain, Kenya, Canada, Belgium and Spain have all hosted her in the past few years. Despite this she remains rooted in South Africa, where the soil is red and her blood feels comfortably and peacefully on edge.
