A SoHo Landmark Since 1983...
AFA Gallery offers a unique collection of original paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture from established and emerging artists.
With the freshly instituted AFA Artist’s Initiative, AFA continues to push forward with a new vision for the future dedicated to projects that promote art and culture at the Chateau Belcastel in France and online. After closing its New York showroom in 2019, it launched the AFA Artist’s Initiative- a collaboration with a group of emerging and established contemporary artists to present a collection of work that is available only online at AFANYC.COM.
AFA Gallery offers a unique collection of original paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture from established and emerging artists. The collective works are characterized by their figurative technique and technical virtuosity, rooted in the history and traditions of illustration and expressionism.
The story begins with a gallery called Animazing, specializing in conceptual animation art and cartoon expressionism. After the emergence of CGI (computer-generated imagery), traditional animation art ceased to exist and the gallery evolved to exhibit “fine art that is fun”.
In keeping with its natural momentum, the gallery’s artistic evolution continued and shifted its focus to original illustration art by American contemporary masters. In 2012, its SoHo branch re-branded as AFA Gallery (Animazing Fine Art). A more sophisticated gallery emerged, one that focused on living contemporary surrealists whose work was edgy and masterful.
