Description
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.
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-Honore 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 Opera 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.
Reviews

"Enter The Carmine Vault, where Birtak and the Fafinettes engage in a colorful journey that banks on the surreal imaginings of the infamous, multi-disciplined Fafi, whom many have come to follow religiously from the pages of Vogue to the interiors of famed culture house Colette, to the streets of Tokyo and New York. Finally, Fafi fans have the book that they've been waiting for!" "Stark

""The Carmine Vault brings to life Fafi's colorful and irreverent world for the first time in a lavish graphic-novel format. This must-have can be purchased at Rizzoli." Hypebeast.com

"In a departure from your average coffee table art book, her latest title The Carmine Vault from Rizzoli New York is actually a graphic novel, set in another universe." Typo-Graphical.com
