Faith47 is an amazing graffiti writer from South Africa. One of her projects is to go to shanty towns in South Africa and paint murals on some of the resident’s shacks. She interacts with and forms real human connections with the community. Not only does this add extra color and positivity to the impoverished environment, she often connects the pieces to current local struggles such as instances of police brutality or rape; encouraging self-empowerment and humane consciousness.

This image is of a piece she did on Intermedia Arts during the 2006 Be-Girl Be Summit. See more images on flickr.
