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

Topsafe Presents: Horfée’s Imaginarium

Posted on March 21, 2013

Topsafe London are currently exhibiting the works of everyone’s favourite Parisian vandal, Horfe, for his debut show in London at a pop-up space at no.4 Wilkes Street.   Whilst his show may be seen as yet another venture of a writer into the world of art, a move that is often readily met with disapproval, it is instead one that perhaps highlights the creative capacity of someone who is able to break from such trappings with little concern for criticism. Horfe’s ever-eclectic hand-style, a mixture of vintage animations and cartoon art that merge into obscure lettering, is seen here to seamlessly translate into artworks that fit comfortably within the space of a gallery. Such a move [...] 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 Lost Art of Bukruk

Posted on March 5, 2013

After the festival winded down and the retrospective artists returned home we started to discover we had actually missed out quite a few pieces from the festival, our apologies go out to the artists that we didn't manage to feature in our earlier posts, there wasn't a whole "favourite artists thing" going on we swear! We just didn't happen to come across the pieces and in our defence the Bukruk festival map hadn't clearly highlighted any pieces that were to be taking place within Siam Square so without any further a do may I present - The Lost Art of Bukruk.

Bukruk Street Art Festival Vol.2 I Pop-Up Gallery Store & Finished Pieces

Posted on February 28, 2013

  With this being the first year of the festival it was great to stumble across such creative wealth being brought together in a city which i felt thrived and encouraged creativity like no other i have come across so far and certify the non-hostility vibe through out the event in which artists were more than willing to talk to you regardless of your social status or background.   After all of the artists had finished their pieces the week long festival was celebrated with the launch of a pop up store which had all of the items suspended and displayed in a 400sqm room that made it more gallery show esque than temporary pop up, it seemed like the freshest way to showcase international [...] Read more

Futura In Bangkok “Pioneers leave directions”

Posted on February 21, 2013

On what must be the final leg of the promotion tour for the latest instalment of the Hennessy artist series, Futura made a stop in Bangkok at the trendy Bad Motel in Thonglor, a sick venue that's themed as though it has suffered from some form of natural disaster falling apart bit by bit with fragmented walls and interior decor that suits the name perfectly, only to host what some would say is the godfather of graffiti and his latest project.   The interior transformed into part art gallery, with Futura's infamous pointman on display and a part interactive bar area fully equipped with a digital graffiti screen allowing event goers to leave their mark. The guests of this invite only [...] Read more

Bukruk Street Art Festival: Work In Progress

Posted on February 20, 2013

On Tuesday we braved the scorching heat of Bangkok and embarked on the Bukruk Festival trail armed with nothing but bottles of water and our cameras slung over our shoulders to discover the work of Thai and European street artists that have been drafted in to take over the city. Featuring artists from ten different european countries and of course native thai's it was great to see such diverse cultures and  creative styles in action and commend the hospitality of the participating artists who managed to make time for whoever dropped by, later in the week we will be out again roaming the streets to check out the finished work so expect a more in depth post coming your way soon. วันอังคารที่ผ่านมาพวกเราเตรียมพร้อมต่อสู้กับอากาศที่ร้อนมากของกรุงเทพและได้เริ่มเดินทางไปยังงานบุกรุกพร้องกับขวดน้ำและกล้องที่แขวนอยู่บนไหล่เพื่อไปค้นหาผลงานของศิลปิน [...] Read more
