Faith47 ProfileI’ve been following Faith 47’s work for a couple of years now, and every time I see one of her images I’m immediately taken. Faith47 is South African. She illustrates and paints her world; asserting herself through the images and words she creates, and often leaves on walls.  Her canvas is diverse, her work finding its place in whatever environment she may find herself, either blending in with the texture of a location or standing out with an unmistakable presence.  Faith’s awe with the world and her quest for inspiration from a closeness to the universal humanity makes her work is a process of self realization and dialogue with the people and places. It is powerful in its subtlety and beautifully frank – both gentle and harsh.  Her words are poetic images; never without meaning which leaving her audience, to reflect on what they are seeing.
