YOUNITY ARTIST: Faith47 / Cape Town, Africa

From Faith47:

“the wall that i painted in cape town recently was sponsored by the british council. the image was inspired by a picture that alexia webster took in macassar, cape town…
of protesters, women, children, men and the elderly… “backyarders” – families who live in back yards because there is no space or housing available or provided by the state. they had taken over an empty piece of land in protest…

here’s an article from the day she took the photo.

i also chose this location because it has a certain resonance to it. as it is where the protesters gather before they march to parliament.”
