Fafi is a French street artist, recognized for her unique graffiti style depicting sexy, funny, voluptuous girl characters in a made-up world.
Originally from Toulouse, Fafi was born in 1976. She attended private school until the age of 18, when she decided to wonder into the art world. Lack of parents’ support didn’t discourage her, and Fafi’s work was first noticed on walls of her hometown in 1994.
In recent years she has exhibited her work at the legendary Parisian fashion boutique Colette, and brought her images to the products of Adidas, Coca-Cola and Mac cosmetics, as well as turning Lily Allen into a Fafinette for Mark Ronson’s music video Oh My God. Her art differs greatly from many other street artists because she prefers to use paint rather than spray cans, which makes a piece of art take longer making her even more of a target to the police. She has travelled the world sharing her art and you can find it anywhere from the U.S. to Tokyo.
