Like most artistic endeavor, graffiti has a lot of emotion behind it, which is evidenced by this emotive Cape Town and London street art. Created by Faith47, these powerful animals represent some of the artist's latest work. According to Colossal, she is known for using existential symbolism and topics such as nature, humanity and the struggles many South Africans have with concepts of poverty, injustice and inequality.

Viewable on her Facebook page, the South African native's London street art does not indicate what the inspiration behind it was. The subjects consist of graceful and melancholy animals like lions and swans. All are shown mid movement, including an enormous mythical unicorn. The graffiti was done in white paint with monochromatic shading.
