ABOUT

Afa is a multi-disciplinary artist and facilitator. Exploring visual arts, music, poetry and performing arts as avenues to relish the ridiculous and meander the mundane into magic.

 

Afa is most prominently a clown and performance artist. Creating both live and filmed pieces which dive into the world of darkness and the grotesque to bring light and beauty. 

In the realms of visual arts Afa is fascinated by everything surreal and cosmic. Often exploring the female form as a portal to the mysteries of the intangible and un-nameable. 


As a poet Afa vomits out the turbulent tides of her insides in an attempt to understand "what the fuck is going on?"
 

Occasionally and mesmerically she strums poetry into song and makes music to offer to the fire. 
 

Afa founded Fool Heart - The Craft of Clown. Facilitating workshops which explore Fool and Clown as an art-form of expression and liberation.
