Filthy Luker bombs Ecuador!

Our friend Flithy Luker has recently brought his inflated mad genius style to Ecuador and we’re loving it: Here’s a few works from the filthy man himself: “The photos above are from my recent visit to Ecuador alongside D* Face and Liniya the graffiti girl from Columbia. D* and I both felt honoured to be the first European artists to be invited over to ‘make a mess’ at the 9th street art festival in Quito, put on by Dinamo Events. We had a good time and made a splash. the photos are evidence.” … I remember those tentacles when they were just likkle nippers at the first Mutate show Behind the Shutters:
