Overview

Faith47, South Africa's first lady of graffiti, is well versed in the art of getting up. She rolls with the hardcore, but touches the hearts of the masses. With a combination of street art and traditional graffiti styles, she creates thought-provoking artwork that crosses artistic and cultural boundaries. Delicate yet raw, joyful yet dark, her work reflects the contradicting nature of society and the environment in which she grew up. She condemns injustice, inequality and society's failings in a series of heartfelt characters and eloquent phrases in fitting locations. Despite the harsh themes expressed, you can sense her celebration of life and hope for the future.
