Sculpture, Photography

 

statement:
  My name is Legofesto. I’m a politics-junkie and news-hound, working in Lego bricks and minifigures. Trained in Fine Art, I recreate actual world events and current affairs, making a surreal and discomforting observation about the state of the world. The Ghosts of Abu Ghraib, a Lego sculpture recreation of actual photographs taken by US guards at the notorious prison in Iraq, recently came second in the alTURNERtive Art Prize.

Please note, LEGO® does not endorse my work.
