The tongue-in-cheek title conveys the juxtaposition of complex, technically virtuous artwork confined to a small physical space; much like the enormity and grandeur of Napoleon Bonaparte confined to a small physical form. The artists in the exhibition have accepted the challenge to express their complex artistic vision without the use of unlimited space.

A landmark gallery in SoHo since 1984, AFA (formerly Animazing) began as an exhibition space specializing in conceptual animation art. Over time, we broadened that scope to include works by renowned Illustrators and pop culture commercial artists as well as fine artists. In 2012, in keeping with the momentum of our natural development and growth, we revamped the gallery’s program with new artists, exhibitions and endeavors and renamed it AFA (Animazing Fine Art).
At AFA, we are inspired by works that are layered with dark complexity and symbolism, indulging the senses and engaging the emotions. We exhibit paintings, drawings and sculpture created by important established and extraordinary emerging artists – including Tim Burton, Nicoletta Ceccoli, Tom Everhart, Daniel Merriam and Kirk Reinert. Our criteria are masterful technique, wild imagination and edgy subject matter. We strive to represent our artists with savvy and passion in an environment that is enjoyable, informative and accessible.
