2013 was a massive year for Faith47, the street artist hailing from Cape Town. Faith’s powerful work has graced gallery spaces and public walls all over the world. We asked Faith a couple questions about her work and she had this to say: “I don’t really have any stories or long explanations that I’d like to get into, because I express myself better with visual language.” So it’s up to you, the audience, to take what you will from these massive, mystical paintings. Here’s a retrospective of the walls she conquered last year in Europe, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, USA and more…

    Yo 47’…Been following your work since Rage for the revolution back in 08′. I must say you have really evolved not only as an artist but also spiritually. I tap into the extrasensory whenever I view your work…much appreciated!!. One thing I would like to know though…what do the swans symbolize/…coz they seem be an intergral part of your work in 2013…#KeepingTheFaith
