These Fafinettes explore femininity through stereotypes then uses them to her advantage. Her Fafinettes are sexy, aggressive, and stylized. In doing this Fafi not only changed the perception of what street art should look like she also gained notoriety which led to a makeup line with MAC cosmetics, toy manufacturing deals, countless press stories, and many solo and prestigious group shows in the most respected galleries around the globe. In addition Fafi has also authored a few books featuring her Fafinettes.
As part of the Women on the Walls program for Art Basel 2013 Fafi created a beautiful mural constructed entirely of flowers on one of the gates and also collaborated with Joey Goldman on a mural of one of her Fafinettes inside the Wynwood Doors.
