Mural by Faith47 in United Kingdom

722 – 481 BC is the newest collaborative work from Faith47 and Lyall Sprong of Thingking.  This large mural is situated in the heart of Manchester’s northern district and pays homage to human intimacy, as well as asserts support for LGBT rights.  At night this public work is brought to life by a beautiful geometric light installation

This artwork is part of the Cities of Hope Mural Project in which the work of each artist is matched to a local grassroots organization. Faiths artwork serves as a potential catalyst for a dialogue between the Partisan collective in Manchester and the Triangle Project based in South Africa.  The piece is also art of Faiths ongoing series, 7.83hz. “Relationships rise and fall, societies blossom and crumble,” staes the artist.  “The profound connectedness between us creates and destroys life. We are sensitive and caring, yet at the same time vulnerable and cruel.  The foundation of the 7.83hz project is recognizing this duality as well as the profound weight of our interconnectedness.”
