Faith 47 is a self taught street artist from South Africa. She is best known for her street art not only in South African cities such as Cape Town and Johannesburg, but also all over the world. A lot of her urban art is done in abandoned, broken down places where it contrasts with its environment very well and where the fragility and impermanence of art in public spaces is highlighted. Apart from her street art she is also doing studio work which has been exhibited in galleries all across the globe. Most of her work is inspired by existential and political questions and also engages the viewer in deeper reflection.
In this photo feature she showcases some of her work from all around the globe done on the streets as well as in the studio.
