Anatomy of a paint job: Hail Mary

17 Oct

Here’s Mary, the second of Luardos‘ mini-fleet of burrito-mobiles. If Jesus’ exterior hit us with a lima ácida, LuarDOS is all about the rosa Mexicana hues. Starting off with this strawberry blamanche base,’s favourite artist, INSA, got to work on transforming this H-Van into a tattoed vision of gorgeousness and funk in London’s left thigh.

No one could ever accuse INSA of not liking pink.

El Dia de los Meurtos makes itself known throughout the van…

And the L.A-inspired Mexican roses soften the blow…

Them headlights on Mary’s grill get me every time.

Aztec coming through…

The man with the magic gun.

And suddenly, after several days of hard graft, a new icon on London’s street food scene emerges…

Look out for Mary (LuarDOS) at King’s Boulevard 21st and 28th October.
