Fafi is notorious for painting and hustling, her sexy, funny, and sometimes aggressive girl characters; by exploring feminity through stereotypes, and using it to her advantage, she drew enormous attention and thus started to travel the world with thousands of Fafinettes in her brushes and paint cans. Fafi started her career on the walls of Toulouse but is now a proud Paris dweller.
Hint: check the Yone x Cheki box set for Fafi's artwork.
