NE Mpls street-art: OBEY-style lucha libre mask?

wheatepaste by Eyeteeth.org

Anyone know anything about this wheatpaste poster in Northeast Minneapolis? Looks like a Shepard Fairey–inspired jack-o-lantern or luchador mask. Or maybe an Obey-style Mexican wrestler pumpkin...

Update: On Twitter Carl Atiya Swanson shares another shot of the poster, which in this version has the word "Lucha" underneath it, seen at 25th and Stevens in South Minneapolis. So much for my pumpkin theory... (Thanks, Nallo.)

Update: Now I'm wondering if it's by Luis Fitch of UNO marketing. It looks an awful lot like this. UNO's Luis Fitch seems to be a big lucha libre fan.

Not only where can I buy a poster, but where can I get sticker packs or commission Lucha for work?

Those of you who want to buy a poster: As you must work for UNO, ask your boss.
