The ever creative graffiti artist Fafi has always caught my attention, She is well known overseas for her images of sexy liberated girls, On walls or in paintings On walls or in paintings and drawings, her girls can be funny, sexy, or aggressive openly confronting and suggestive to the viewer.
By exploring feminity through stereotypes, and using it to her advantage, she drew enormous attention to herself and her amazing work and started to travel the world with thousands of Fafinettes in her brushes and paint cans. Europe, USA, Japan, Hong-Kong, the planet is a playground!
Sony then asked Fafi to design a six-character toy set for the Time Capsules collection, an almost natural move for her three-dimensional measures.Other successful figurines would follow, as well as numerous expositions and collaborations with Colette, Adidas, LeSportSac, Coca-Cola, M.A.C cosmetics and countless press stories in the most prestigious magazines (ie. Vogue, Elle, The Face, XLR8R, Yen etc...).
A more recent success to note and something we would recognize in Australia more recently is her collaboration with Mark Ronson video featuring a fafinette Lily Allen.

And even more recently her collaboration with Adidas has made her work even more well known!
