Streets: Faith47 – “Una Salus Victis Nullam Sperare Salutem” (Johannesburg)

Una Salus Victis Nullam Sperare Salutem is the name of a new mural from Faith47 in Johannesburg on the corner of Fox and Rissik street. The piece captures some zebras in action along with a phrase that references Virgil’s Aeneid paraphrased by the artist – “the one safety for the vanquished is to abandon hope of safety. Surrendering to the knowledge that there is no hope, can bring deep courage.” The mural spanning two sides of an old, now-vacant department store, and the imagery brings movement to the fast-transforming […]

The project saw a street art legend in Miss Van teaming up with fellow artists who may not share the same experience getting up in the public arena but who feature the same surrealist vision in their artwork. Dan Quintana, Victor Castillo, and Esao Andrews more than held their own with the French artist, while also taking time to try on some […]
