AFA ANNFA

Hong Kong | B.1983

Afa Annfa is one of the emerging stars in the local art scene. Her works probe the complexities of human emotions and our connection with one another, capturing tensions between the human psyche and worldly materials. 

Afa approaches painting with her visceral meditation and observation that evoke sentiments and feelings. Her practice recalls the style of Japanese Ukiyo-e and irregular comic, depicting figures that seem to be fictional in an atmospheric environment yet remain to be substantial and grounded.Through images adapted from popular culture, Afa creates narratives and a unique language to manifest her inner visions.

Afa was born in 1983 in Hong Kong. She earned a BA from Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Before becoming a full-time artist, she worked in one of the biggest advertising agencies in Hong Kong. She enjoyed a successful career as a commercial illustrator collaborating with international as well as local brands and musicians. In 2018, Afa was awarded the CreateSmart Young Design Talent Award from the DFA Hong Kong Design Talent Award. She is also a founding member of Eaton Workshop. In 2020, Afa started to gain more momentum and recognition by participating in various charity auctions including the Extra Ordinary Exhibition with Karen Leung Foundation at Phillips, and the HKAGA fundraiser event at Christie’s. 


李思汝(Afa Annfa)是香港藝術界後起之秀,她擅於刻畫人類複雜細膩的情感和人際關係,捕捉個體心靈與世俗物質之間的角力。

Afa從對日常生活的觀察之中獲得啟發創作的情感和氛圍。她的畫風趣怪,帶有日本浮世繪和誌異漫畫的味道。她筆下塑造出來的虛構人物角色性格鮮明,形象立體。她以獨特的敘事角度把流行文化的圖像挪用到虛構人物身上,以此表達她內心對外在世界的反思。

Afa生於一九八三年香港。她從香港理⼯⼤學畢業並獲得⽂學⼠學位。畢業後,她曾以商業插畫家的身份在大型廣告公司工作,合作品牌和對象囊括本土及國際品牌和音樂家。二零一八年,Afa榮獲DFA香港⻘年設計才俊獎的創意智優⻘年設計才俊獎。 二零二零年,Afa積極參與慈善拍賣,包括與梁愷昍婦癌基⾦會於富藝斯協辦的「普通不過…展覽」以及香港畫廊協會於佳⼠得舉辦的籌款活動,反映她在藝術市場上越來越受到認可。
