About Faith XLVII
Liberty Du, who is widely recognized as Faith XLVII, is a South African known as one of the world’s most prominent female street artists.
Her journey into art began on the streets of South Africa in 1979, as a young graffiti writer. In 2006, Liberty began on a nomadic journey which has brought her to create works in 41 countries.
Her evolution from street artist to a multi-disciplinary artist has created a fluid yet solid bridge into the contemporary art world. This explorative approach has led her to develop a broad range of artwork. The thread of Liberty’s practice can be traced from abandoned structures, landmark 20 story buildings to museums and galleries all the way through to intimate site-specific installations.
One can observe in Liberty’s approach evidence of her own personal quest, which in turn brings to the forefront much larger concerns of universal social and political complexities. There is a longing for a deeper connection to nature, and a resurrection of the divine feminine. There is too the active investigation and questioning of the human condition, its deviant histories and our own inherent existential search.
