Faith47’s work can be found in many locations in South Africa and various other international cities around the world. The style and the mood of her work is clearly recognisable, and is incorporated into the texture of the urban environment.
Faith47’s early work was inspired primarily by the social realities with which she is faced in her country. She was interested in juxtaposing the vast difference between the promises of a better life brought in with the “New South Africa” post-Apartheid and the harsh reality of the lives of most South Africans. Her Freedom Charter project, which featured phrases from the iconic freedom charter document on inner city streets, is a good example of this. Other issues dealt with in this period revolve around various social issues facing the country.
In later work, a pre-occupation with existential symbolism become more prominent. The human condition and our relationship to animals and nature are recurring themes. Faiths newer works seem to be parables, pointing to ethereal meanings. A subtle mixture of the hard realities of the human world with mans spiritual yearnings and aspirations to find an inner understanding.
