Faith 47 is an internationally acclaimed visual artist from South Africa. Through her work, Faith 47 attempts to advance the expression of personal truth. Faith’s work explores the duality of human relationships and the profound weight of our interconnectedness.
Channeling the international destinations that have been imprinted on her after two decades of interacting with urban environments as one of the most renowned and prolific muralists, she continues to examine our place in the world.
Using a wide range of media intended for gallery settings, her approach is explorative and substrate appropriate, including found and rescued objects, shrine construction, painting, projection mapping, video installation, printmaking and drawings.
The seeds for Faith47’s works begin with a raw intimacy. Exploring the duality of human relationships, her imagery carries the profound weight of our interconnectedness.
While some people see a dilapidated building as proof that the world is purging itself of the unwanted, she is reclaiming these forgotten elements with a sensuality of her own and presenting them with a virtuoso’s skill-set.
