25 January 2011 One Comment

From Here to Fame Publishing will be releasing a brand new Faith 47 book in March 2011.  Faith47, South Africa’s first lady of graffiti, is well versed in the art of getting up.  She rolls with the hardcore, but touches the hearts of the masses. With a combination of street art and graffiti styles, she creates thought-provoking artwork that crosses artistic and cultural boundaries.

Delicate yet raw, joyful yet dark, her work reflects the contradicting nature of society and the environment in which she grew up.   She condemns injustice, inequality and society’s failings in a series of heartfelt characters and eloquent phrases in fitting locations.   Despite the harsh themes expressed, you can sense her celebration of life and hope for the future.

  • Faith 47 is one of the leading female urban artists in the world.
  • She has successfully crossed over into the art world, exhibiting in galleries and participating in urban art events worldwide.
  • From monumental slogans to graffiti styles, her work can be described as social commentary meets street art.
  • The successful ON THE RUN series introduces and showcases the very best in street art and graffiti talent worldwide.   Each book in the series is numbered, the idea being that the reader can collect all the books and build their very own comprehensive library that reflects the real history of urban and graffiti culture from an insider’s perspective.
