South African street artist Faith47 has just unveiled a new genre-bending mural in Abu Dhabi, and it's being called one of the world-renowned artist's finest works yet.
The mural depicts a traditional falconer, painted against a background of golden Arabic geometries -- an image that the artist said on social media will be connected to another work she will be completing in Abu Dhabi in 2018.
Just completed the first part of a larger commission in the United Arab Emirates. Really excited for the second phase next year where ill be designing a entire tunnel joining Yas Island to Abu Dhabi. Huge shout out to @maxripo @uaemurals and @soloone.blogspot.co.uk for helping out and making it a fun week* Heading to Oman now to hike in the desert with my mother for two days. A short breath on the wind in the middle of an insane schedule. Then to Miami to create some magik with @inkakendzia Life's feeling pretty blessed right now. Salaam Alaikum #faith47 #XLVII #unitedarabemirates #abudhabi
The artist's work appears all over the world, but has made a particular mark in the Johannesburg city centre on many of the buildings left dilapidated after the corporate evacuation of the city at the dawn of democracy.
