Streets: Faith47 (Cape Town)

Faith47 just shared this beautiful piece in Khayelitsha, Cape Town. Titled You Hold No Blame For My Proud Heart, the piece is shows two swans facing each other forming a heard shaped image. In her signature manner, the South African artist used watered out paint that dripped all over the wall as well as got soaked in, making the mural become one with the surface and the building it’s painted on. The transparency of the image and the fact that the wall wasn’t cleaned or buffed before […]
