Faith’s Art – In her art you can see the influence of the outlines and textures that are present around you, while you are walking on a South African street. Her artworks are on unusual walls and surfaces, broken-down cars, old factories, side roads of ghost towns, and inner city alleyways. Faith is looking into the destructive and creative sides of nature, looking through all kind all living species. Her paintings are both symbolic and full of meanings, that she conveys in a message that is abstract but sharp enough to get through.
