FILTHY LUKER AND PEDRO ESTRELLASUK
ART WORK/PROJECT NAME: TEMPLE
ABOUT THE ARTIST: FILTHY LUKER AND PEDRO ESTRELLAS
Designs in Air artists: Filthy Luker and Pedro Estrellas, have been creating original inflatable works of art for almost 20 years. The artists began collaborating on projects, experimenting with shape, form and function. Whereas most inflatable structures at the time were figurative, used for cartoon-like advertising or for bouncing on, their sculptures were objects of abstract beauty. As time passed their pieces became bigger and more diverse and began to infiltrate festivals and outdoor events with a range of rentable sculptures to choose from.
The company is now known around the world for its quality of service and original artistic approach, having provided commissions as diverse as giant pop-up publicity stunts for Greenpeace, touring stage sets for Cirque du Soleil and a life-size sperm whale covered in a thousand twinkling star-lights paraded at the Paralympic opening ceremony of London 2012.
