Faith47 has traveled all over the world to paint and has hosted solo art shows in cities like New York and London. Her work rejuvenates bare urban walls and dilapidated buildings.

Faith47 is an internationally-acclaimed visual artist from South Africa who has been applauded for her ability to resonate with people around the world.

Through her work, Faith47 attempts to disarm the strategies of global realpolitik, in order to advance the expression of personal truth. In this way, her work is both an internal and spiritual release that speaks to the complexities of the human condition, its deviant histories and existential search.


The video below shows Faith’s artistic process and time lapses her work over the 5 days. A large mural of lions is also showcased in the video.

While some people see a dilapidated building as proof that the world is purging itself of the unwanted, Faith47 is reclaiming these forgotten elements with a sensuality of her own and presenting them with a virtuoso’s skill-set.
