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,
