Hennessy x Faith47 Mural Unveiling
On the 22nd of April, the final piece of the Hennessy Mural trilogy was unveiled at an exclusive event in Braamfontein, which saw artists and creatives such as MC Scoop Makhathini, Osmic Menoe, Fhatuwani Mukheli, Karabo Poppy and the likes come together to celebrate.
Hennessy – the world’s leading cognac brand – had commissioned South African street-turned-studio artist Faith47 to complete its iconic Mural Trilogy. The trilogy has been seven years in the making and pays tribute to South African game-changers. It features Nelson Mandela, depicted by international artist Shepard Fairey in 2014 (Braamfontein); Yvonne Chaka Chaka, brought to life by Portuguese street artist Vhils in 2018 (Maboneng); and now, Faith XLVII’s tribute to the women of Johannesburg.
