Street artist

You may not know her name or face, but you might know her work. Faith47 is one of South Africa's most prolific street artists, with images adorning everything from abandoned cars to old factories and decaying urban spaces. She says she has a "deep affinity� for neglected places, which is why she uses them as a canvas to highlight "our elusive relationship with dreams, memory and human interaction�. Luckily people don't have to frequent back alleys to access her images. Her work is exhibited in Berlin, the US, China, Spain and here at home, and is also featured in international art and culture magazines and documentaries. Her work and approach to art have received the exposure and recognition she seeks not only to elevate her own work but also the art form as a whole.�Lisa van Wyk
