Phil Lumbang

From http://www.jetsetgraffiti.com/- "a quick introduction to a young (Filipino) street artist who has been getting up quite a bit lately in Los Angeles. We like the work for the simple message and the idea of using art as a catalyst for social change..."

As a child Phil Lumbang was obsesed and inspired by cartoons. His illustrations of bears, coined "awesome bears" by fans, spread a message of happiness and understanding.

Phil lives in Los Angeles and previously worked with Obey Giant's Studio Number One.
