Fabifa, Proud, 2020
gaffa tape, duct tape, wood panel, 120x70cm, 2020
The artwork titled “Proud” is a portrait of a man with long, flowing red hair and a beard, who gazes confidently and directly at the viewer. The man’s expression is one of pride, as if he is fully aware of his own strength and worth.
The use of contrasting colors in the artwork, such as the bright orange, blue, neon green, and red tones, adds to the vibrancy and energy of the piece. These colors create a sense of boldness and dynamism, drawing the viewer’s attention to the subject’s striking features and commanding presence.
The background of the artwork is divided into two parts, with one half black and the other half yellow. This contrast adds to the overall composition of the piece, as well as accentuating the subject’s features and the overall sense of confidence and strength that emanates from the piece.
Overall, “Proud” is a work of art that captures the essence of a confident and self-assured man through its striking use of color, composition, and subject matter.

Born and raised in conservative Belarus, Fabifa discovered a new found freedom when moving to Berlin in 2015. The city‘s open attitude provided a perfect platform for self discovery and reflection which she shows within her art.
Her body of work captures harmonious moments, aiming to reflect her subject‘s sensations and feelings, in a perspective from which she is in control.
A further focal point is Fabifa’s aesthetic preference and perception of beauty. We see examples of scarification, tattooing and clear depictions of Fetish elements all of which trigger positive emotional responses within her.
Fabifa’s material of choice, tape, has powerful connotations to fetish in itself. With it’s shiny, smooth surface it reflects other frequently fetishized materials such as latex or leather. Coupled with her use of sharp, bold shapes and vibrant colors, she visually enhances the way in which she communicates her ideas and perceptions with the viewer.
Fabifa uses tape art as a political protest, as an expression of her personal and sexual freedom. She sees most of her art as a tool of communication that is supposed to raise awareness to political justice, equality and self-expression.
“My work brings up social and cultural questions, by examining traditional, popular and subcultures, notions of freedom and how these influence and form society.
I close the gap between social stereotypes and open new ways for people to perceive different cultures in a globalized world.
Graphic rawness and clarity of lines are delivered through the properties of tape, my primary medium. My preference to this aesthetic was subconsciously influenced by USSR propaganda art and later in life, in stark contrast, by pop and comic art.
Ironically the function of tape to ‘stick together‘ or bond lends itself perfectly in combining two opposing sources of inspiration. Essentially, my purpose as an artist is to embody the tape’s characteristic to make bonds and unite different ideas.
Furthermore my recent color palette has been greatly influenced by Ultraviolet glowing corals and sea creatures in correlation with the urban night life of a modern metropolis.
Human existence and perception are at the center of my work with the exploration of creating a blueprint of the future human.”
