The late Pharuephon ‘’Tum’’ Mukdasanit, also known as “Mamafaka” (13 September 1978 – 9 September 2013), was a Thai graphic designer and street artist who was best known as the creator of one of the most recognizable characters in Thai pop art: ‘MR.HELLYEAH!’ - a hairy, one-eyed monster with a moustache that appeared in picture frames, paintings, t-shirts, shoes, skateboards, bags, furniture, iPhone cases, graffiti, and champagne bottles. His works also appeared on many local and international fashion and design magazines such as: Wallpaper*, CG+ and Territory.

The creation of MAMAFAKA’s signature character, MR. HELLYEAH, was a hit with his followers worldwide and led to the development of his own product line.
