The enigmatically-named Fafi originally hails from Paris, France. during the mid-1990s, she first began to enliven local walls and spaces with her graffiti art, garnering admiration for her distinct graphic sensibility, which proposed sassy and humorous depictions of subverted feminine stereotypes. Encouraged by her initial success, Fafi travelled around the world – making her mark in Japan, Europe, USA and Hong Kong – and forged further enthusiastic fans far and wide. High profi le collaborations with, for example, electronic mega-brands, cutting-edge fashion boutiques, sports labels and make-up ranges all duly ensued, with Fafi ’s imagery also being featured in glossy magazines, pop videos and best-selling books. A new-found depth was brought to Fafi ’s creative output after she became a mother, in 2007, though her mischievous visual spirit remains as potent as ever in her latest works.
