One of the joys of urban living is coming across a sudden burst of colour and ideas brought to a nondescript wall by a grafitti artist. Some of them, like top SA street artist, Faith47, do more than just inject a bit of energy. Her exquisite work manages to bring a mood and sense of presence, turning a derelict site into a place somehow fragile and moving.
