Failure is a realistic option, BUT so is not failing. Why bet against yourself? Why place so much faith in something which is designed to defeat you. Place all your energy into the realistic possibility of victory. You have everything to gain.

PHOTOSET: ‘A STUDY OF WARWICK TRIANGLE AT RUSH HOUR’ BY FAITH47

Faith47 has recently completed the painting of six huge walls, on four of the supporting columns of the N3 viaduct adjacent to the Early Morning Market in Warwick.
An ambitious project in the heart of Durban, South Africa. It is one of the Fringe Projects that forms part of  the 25th World Congress on Architecture, UIA2014.

Faith was originally introduced to the area by Doung Jahangeer, a Durban artist architect and co-founder of dalacreative.
Referring to Warwick triangle she says, “I’m specifically interested in exploring this notion of the informal economy.
I was struck by the potent energy of this area.  The paintings are portraits of some of the traders in the area,
a tribute to the everyday man on the street.”
