GO: fafi – the carmine vault (mini exhibit/book release party) | gallery nucleus 4.16.12

02Apr12

Fafi, one of my favorite female artists, will be at Gallery Nucleus on Monday, April 16th for the opening reception of “The Carmine Vault,” a mini art exhibit and book release party (6pm  – 9pm). If you’re not familiar with her art, please do some research!

Hailing from Paris, Fafi will be in the building to talk about her new book “The Carmine Vault” (click here to pre-order yours today!). About the book:

Centered around a character called Birtak and his desire to join the Paris Opéra 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.

What you can expect that evening:

  • Brand new original works will also be on display. 3 new exclusive prints will be released at the event
  • Free Fafi cupcakes served by “Little Sweeties Cupcakes”
  • Free raffle prizes to attendees only. Prizes include 2 signed books and 3 limited edition Fafi Tote Bags. Only 40 available!

About Fafi:

Fafi’s creative output has turned the definition of street art on its head. 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-Honoré institution multiple times. As a multidisciplinary artist, Fafi has developed an international cult following that has transformed her from artist to brand. 

Here are some samples of Fafi’s art for your viewing pleasure (courtesy of her website and other sources):
