Are you thinking that Fafi is fluffy?

Fafi is an early adopter to street art and is currently living and working in Paris. Through her art, Fafi has been exploring her femininity through stereotypes, using them to her advantage. Fafi not only knocked her male colleagues and competitors out their socks, she also locked toy manufacturing deals with Sony and Medicom.

Fafi has also contributed to countless press stories and illustrations for Commons & Sense, Vogue, Elle and The Face, as well as big market collaborations with Adidas, M.A.C, Hennessy, Swatch, Samsung and Le SportSac, not to mention many solo and prestigious group shows in the most respected galleries around the world.

Her presence during the Miami Art Basel at Wynwood walls “Women on the walls” curated by Jeffrey Deitch, brought her back to the art world with two art pieces showcasing her usual “Fafinettes” and a flower “SALOPE” installation opened to new mediums.

  • Becoming a mother, her next natural move was animating the ‘Fafinettes’ in music videos like Lily Allen and Mark Ronson’s ‘Oh My God’ or her co-directed ‘Do Do Do’ for Ed Banger act Carte Blanche. She also directed full-Kno videos for Mademoiselle Yulia and Azealia Banks, the latter becoming real-flesh characters.
  • Her last but not least director’s job was to shoot live M.I.A for the first Youtube Music Award in New-York in November 2013 along with Spike Jonze’s team.
  • Her first comic book ‘The Carmine Vault” released in April 2012 on eminent Rizzoli Books and Alternatives.
  • Now not only the Fafinettes are fly girls, they also run a whole universe of creatures, homes and vehicles. It’s a dreamy and peculiar place.

It just shows, there’s nothing fluffy about Fafi!
