After the wall for The Aqueduct Murals in Queens NY, South African Faith47 is now in Miami for Miami Art Basel 2013 where she just finished this beautiful mural almost completely painted in gold.
As usual Faith47′s work is of a strange and delicate beauty  often having to do with the impermanence of life, a fascination with the tragedy of our existence, and the search for spirituality. Just like the piece here presented.
The wall is by the way located on NW 22nd St and 2nd Ave.
