The artist Filthy Luker creates artwork which is generally pretty large. It is well summed up by the artist’s statement, so that follows. The works titled ‘Art Attacks’ are public incursions onto and into existing objects of many different sizes. I will say it is definitely playful in nature. Sort of Feynmannian art- one of grasping opportunities when they present themselves.

 Filthy Luker is a painter who is really attacking his audience. Who could think that a green octopus suddenly starts to creep out from the windows, a huge banana rind lounges just in the center of a road and the trees start to see! The painter transforms the urban environment making the tortured inhabitants stiffen with astonishment in front of a merrily winking water pipe, a sad TV which was thrown out by its owner or a large-toothed rubbish bin. This art is sparkling with humor, recklessness, it shocks you and you are forced to look at the world in a new way.
