Pharuephon “MAMAFAKA” Mukdasanit

Posted on March 30, 2013

Fresh from his debut show late last year dubbed No Cartoon After News Tonight and just recently taking part in the Bukruk Street Art Festival we were kindly welcomed by the man himself at his studio to take a closer look behind the scenes and discover the work he has put out to date. Graphic designer turned street artist Pharuephon Mukdasanit aka MAMAFAKA has been making waves with his character Mr. Hellyeah, a trademark style consisting of a cyclops eye, moustache and fury body.   Although the MMFK pseudonym is only a few years young the wealth of work already put out under the handle as well as the popularity gained in such a short period of time is phenomenal and one to be applauded [...] Read more

Although still in its infancy URFACE has already had an exciting few years since its inception, producing limited edition bags and accessories each numbered and with artists signature its refreshing to see a brand with great ethics at its core especially in an era when the marketing words 'limited edition' has the consumers mind in a mess trying to figure out how many of them were actually produced.   The concept behind URFACE is to have a constantly refreshed collection by inviting the finest creative heads of Thailand to put there stroke of genius across the catalog of URFACE canvasses, already having worked with numerous of well known brands and a artist collection with party organizers [...] Read more

The Kaws Tragedy of Siam

Posted on March 12, 2013

After being out in Bangkok for a few months now my ill conceived perceptions of Thailand as a whole have been blown out of the water and left a ground shattering aftershock in my mind, Bangkok is by far the most creativity driven and encouraging city i have ever had the opportunity to explore and although we are in our infancy you will find a wealth of posts supporting what goes down in the capital.   I certainly didn't want my first real post about Siam Center to have any form of negativity at all i aliken this place as a mold of concept spaces such as Dover Street Market or Colette on a much larger scale and in the form of a shopping mall that is boutique and design driven however [...] Read more

Goodhood Life Store Launch

Posted on March 10, 2013

Since 2007 the Goodhood name has been one of constant praise and all of that praise is rightly due as most independent companies would find it hard to stay open for a year let alone nearly 6, and to say that the company has grown during those years is a vast understatement. Due to their carefully curated range of clothing and products, not to mention their impeccable customer service, the store has gained a loyal following and since their inception we've seen the addition of a second floor and their new Life Store literally just across the road.   After a tiring and repetitive day at work it was nice to walk up the cobbled street in Hoxton to be greeted by free beers and a newly opened [...] Read more

FOR | JASPAL Artist Collection Launch

Posted on March 2, 2013

  Its refreshing to see a large brand working with artists who are mainly street artists, collaborating on a collection that's accessible to most and giving the artists more audience reach, most importantly with people who wouldn't normally discover their artwork whilst at the same time giving their tight knitted fan base the chance to take home a piece of their work. As well as the t-shirt collection, the artists were invited to decorate the Jaspal mascot dubbed MR.PAL with their creative talents which after the event will be displayed in a large window display in the Jaspal store held at Siam Centre, a trendy boutique shopping mall in Bangkok that I can only describe as though it's [...] Read more
