29 x 25 x 3 cm
Faith 47 is a self-taught artist, everything she has learned comes from the street. Faith was born in the graffiti world and was a very active writer in South Africa until she started travelling and painting in the streets of the world, especially in problematic places that needed media attention. Anyone can make art in the streets, but a rare few create socially impactful content, and there is no denying that Faith's work has transformed perspectives among her global audience. Her name Faith symbolises her trust and hope in humanity, symbolises the trust with which she navigates through the world, and her name reaches beyond identity, becoming symbolic of a motivation to create art for progress.
