Fafi from France

Alright, time for the first dose of inspiration. If you're into female characters, bright colours, street art and mischief, then Fafi is the artist for you. Fafi, a graffiti artist from France, started making her mark on the walls of her hometown (Toulouse) back in 1994 with her sexy, funny, and sometimes aggressive girl characters known as "Fafinettes".

Fafi has had 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.). I first discovered Fafi in Yen's minimag called Miso back when I was in my midteens. The minimag folded out to reveal a full page Fafi poster. Needless to say, it graced my walls for many years!
