This year’s Moniker Art Fair will include a solo entitled Aqua Regalia by Faith47, set to open on the 9th of October. Using different mediums, including graphite, spray paint, oil paint, ink, photography and collage, she usually paints on found objects or discarded documents, transferring the feel of her mural works. The transparency of her mark making and the texture of finished works give them a sense of age and spirituality. Often mixing religious iconography with ordinary, everyday elements and geometrical objects, her paintings, drawings and sketches seem to have an almost sacramental importance. For this particular show, the South Africa-based artist prepared pieces that mirror the imagery we’ve seen her paint on walls around the world. From African wildlife or wild dogs, to gracious swans and feminine figures, these works are excellent overview of her recent artistic journey.
