"Una Salus Victis Nullam Sperare Salutem" New Mural by Faith47

Faith47 is a self-taught contemporary street artist based in Cape Town, South Africa.

Following an active street art career spanning more than fifteen years, her work can now be found in major cities around the world. Using a wide range of media, including graphite, spray paint, oil paint, ink, photography and collage, her approach is explorative and substrate appropriate – from found and rescued objects, to time-layered and history-textured city walls, to studio prepared canvas and wood.

She has recently just finished a spectacular mural on the streets of Johannesburg. Located on the corner of Fox and Rissik street, the piece is titled "Una Salus Victis Nullam Sperare Salutem" a phrase from book 2 of Virgil's 'Aeneid', which translates: “the one safety for the vanquished is to abandon hope of safety”.
