I first met @brendantheblob in Portland during @ffttnw and was intrigued by his style and quietly perceptive persona. His work is metaphysical, stepping over reality as we know it and displaying the energetic pulses therein. His zines are exquisite with storylines resonating time, space and the connections between beings. He currently has an exhibition at @heathceramics in Los Angeles if youre in town dont miss it .*

Endless Love for Winnie Mandela who carried the pain and struggle of the Nation. I cant fully express the deep respect I feel for her life and the relevance of her voice within what happened in the ANC, and the country, having to endure the awful plots to devalue her character. May her legacy inspire the real change that is still desperately needed.
I highly recommend you watch the documentary ‘winnie’ about her life to get amore balanced understanding of her life then the one spread in mainstream media. (you can find it on netflix)
Thanks to @protrahere for sharing his capture of hunger in London. I never thought i’d say it but i miss that grey megalopolis...
For the @beyondthestreetsart exhibition in Los Angeles for Ill be exploring the @aquaregalia and Landfill Meditation thematics... Be sure to visit www.beyondthestreets.com for more info.
Landfill Meditation reflects on the notion of progress and the waste that it leaves behind. This is about integrating the worst parts of ourselves.
Landfill Meditation makes for uncomfortable viewing: rather than the usual postcard view a city, we are forced to linger on unsettling imagery of the derelict spaces in which Faith places her broken cars, symbols of forgotten and discarded once cherished objects.

I am totally in love with this new work ✨ Will have one of these beauties on show at @monikerartfair in May. If youre in NYC come and say hi! Opening is on the 3rd of May.
There are times when I miss the energy of those Johannesburg streets.
Laying out some new Deconstructed Atlases to send to South Africa to get sewn into large tapestries.
