Recent street Art Work
Faith has just recently completed a work titled “’the hearts lonely thunder’ in Tel Aviv, Israel. The image of the distressed horse trying to break free from its restraints is incredibly powerful – a struggle perhaps? Appropriate as to the location of the piece, this resonates throughout her work.
Other Studio Art Pieces
Faith47 has numerous art pieces that have been showcased in various locations, the last being at Antenna Garden 2012 in Melbourne Australia. Faith47 uses various textures such as rustic wood which add amazing character depth to her works. Drawing techniques and wood scratchings can also be observed throughout these works these are through sketches, inks, charcoal and water colours.

Faith47’s Street Art Blog
Check out the info section of faiths blog: Faiths images reconstruct lost objects, broken-down cars, old factories and dusty side roads of forgotten towns. She investigates how humans interact with their environment, what scratches and memories they leave behind. Her interactions resonate with our fragility, with our innate understanding of symbols, dreams, textures and inevitable impermanence (Faith47.com).
