Quick Overview

Fafi’s creative output has turned the definition of street art on its head. Exploring a class of female stereotypes through the sexy, aggressive, and stylized renderings of her Fafinettes, this demimonde has expanded into a fully realized fantasy world now peopled with a diversity of characters—female, male, and animal.

Details

Fiercely feminine and extravagantly rendered in color, her particular style has won her global acclaim. Appealing to consumers of streetwear and high fashion, her art and designs can be found everywhere from the streets of Tokyo and New York, the boutiques of M.A.C. Cosmetics and Adidas, to the pages of Vogue, Elle, Nylon, and XLR8R. A favorite of Colette Paris, her work has been shown in the gallery of the Faubourg St-Honoré institution multiple times. As a multidisciplinary artist, Fafi has developed an international cult following that has transformed her from artist to brand.

Centered around a character called Birtak and his desire to join the Paris Opéra Ballet, The Carmine Vault brings to life Fafi’s colorful and irreverent world for the first time in a lavish graphic-novel format. Combining comic book elements with the prestige and allure of art books, the book employs elegant compositions and innovative printing effects to reproduce vivid, never-before-seen work from this celebrated artist.
