Artist : FAITH47 (South Africa)
Faith47 is a self-taught artist who draws inspiration from her own 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 bring attention to the most humble of environments. Her interactions resonate with our fragility and our elusive relationship with dreams, memory and human interaction.
Initially recognized for her graffiti and street art work, Faith has fast established herself internationally, showing in galleries and participating in projects worldwide. She remains rooted in South Africa, where the soil is red and her blood feels comfortably and peacefully on edge.
