Lastplak Oles "Shower Time" Signed Graffiti Urban Art Print

Lastplak is: Oles, Boortorrie, Sake, Acab, Grrt, Pinwin, Ox-Alien, Ces53, Yen, Mayb and Sterf. The word 'Lastplak' is sort of a play on words in the Dutch language. It is a combination of the old-fashioned word "lastpak" (an annoying person or a pain in the ass) and the word 'plak' (from 'plakken', which means to stick or paste). Combining these words would mean something along the lines of an annoying sticker. Also it can mean an irritating person who puts up stickers or disturbing messages spread using the sticker as medium to do this.
