Asia Alfasi

Graphic Novelist


Asia Alfasi is an award winning British Libyan graphic novelist. Born in Libya in 1984, she spent her formative years first in Tripoli, and then in Glasgow, Scotland where she migrated with her family. Growing up with Arabic-dubbed classical anime as a child, she later discovered its manga form and fell in love; devoting time to learning the craft, and in the process, realising its immense potential of humanising people and furthering understanding. Ever since, she has represented the Muslim and Arab voice through her work, whether it be animation, graphic novel work or exhibitions; with the ultimate aim of harnessing the medium as a tool for cross-cultural dialogue and societal creative exchange.
