Rest in peace, Mamafaka. The Thai street artist with the tongue-in-cheek moniker and Bangkok B-boy fashion flair had been featured extensively on this blog, for example his street art for the Bukruk festival and his burgeoning fashion presence. Mamafaka’s work encapsulated a certain young Bangkok sensibility: colourful, cute, streetwise and playful, like his skateboarding cyclops character, the popular Mr Hellyeah! Its sad to see him pass so early.
The thirty five year old artist died in a freak surfing accident in Phuket yesterday.
