Stores Of Siam: Above The Rim Grand Opening

Posted on May 13, 2013

Thailand's leading sneaker store V.A.C have launched the new Basketball room at their Siam Square location in true style by collaborating with native artist Mamafaka. The celebrations were entangled with release drops from the Air Jordan 1 Retro OG in White/Varsity Red -Black and Black/Varsity Royal-Black to the limited t-shirt collaboration with Mamafaka who was on hand throughout the day signing shirts and doing sketches for anyone cheekily enough to put a canvas under his nose.   A great day of celebration for the ever growing sneaker scene in Bangkok, congrats to the lucky few who managed to win sign and framed collaboration tees and free pairs of Jordan's.       View [...] Read more

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

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

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
