Luke Egan aka Filthy Luker is a mixed media artist from Bristol, best known for his unique urban installations such as a giant octopus and enormous googly eyes in trees. Along with his friend Pedro Estrellas, they turn their playful ideas into seriously large sculptures as some kind of personal vendetta against the mundane confines of the city in a heroic effort to make the world a brighter, more surreal place for us all.

Filthy Luker especially enjoys attacking places with octopus. Once the artist has done with an installation, he calls these buildings and museums “octopied”. Commissioned pieces of octopus can be found in cities such as London, Geneva, Singapore, and Quito, Ecuador.

Cluj-Napoca joins this list with an essential institution for the collective imagination – the Octavian Goga Cluj County Library. The Tentacles draw attention to the building that encompasses so many written worlds, raising awareness on the connection (or lack of it) between architecture and the universe within it.
