Artist Faith47 beautifies streets and drab urban spaces — with subtle meanings of life.

 

The street artist named Faith47, based in Cape Town, South Africa, has been buzzing around not only in her beloved City but as well as in London, Paris, Berlin, Tel Aviv, Los Angeles, Melbourne, Shanghai, and many more. Her magical touch could morph the drab and decayed urban spaces into beautiful landmarks.

At the outset, Faith47’s street artwork symbolizes the social realities on the street of South Africa where people still grappling with harsh living condition despite of the promises of the post-apartheid New South Africa.  But as she ventures into international scene, her ethereal artwork tends to convey existential symbolism with mystical messages. The paintings of humans and animals in neglected landscapes seemed to portray the longing of deeper understanding of Life.

Please scroll down and enjoy these images imbued with subtle meanings of life.
