South African artist Faith47 was recently in Los Angeles, California, where she completed a beautiful large-scale mural of graceful swans in motion. Titled The Preciousness of the Hunt, it was arranged by the Do Art Foundation and is located in the downtown area. Her painted work is not only eye-catching, but playfully interacts with the ground below; at certain angles it looks like the birds are emerging from the trees.
Using a combination of spray paint and brushes, Faith47 has done an incredible job of making this massive artwork look as effortless as a sketch. She layers opaque pigment and gestural marks that give the illusion of it being drawn with a pencil. This effect pairs nicely with the green wall it's painted on as we see the colored brick peeking through the swans' wings.
