Yes, we know, we know. We write about South African street artist Faith47 way too often. So what? It’s our prerogative. And she deserves it.

Between stints in Europe, the artist has been doing walls in Durban – invited by the organisers of the 25th World Congress on Architecture.

She will return in August and complete the remaining three walls of the six that she has been commissioned to beautify.

The walls are under the main freeway overpass overlooking the Early Morning Market on Warwick.

Faith47 told “This is a potent high-energy zone that really reaches the people on the street. I needed to dedicate these walls to the individuals who work there, to the strength and importance of informal trade within our economy. It is the people of Warwick who have made it so alive. The architecture truly belongs to them.”
