BiographyAme72 from his real name James Ame, a full-time artist who does street art all around the world. With an authentic background in graffiti and street art, Ame72 has developed his style into what he best describes as 'Conceptual Pop Art'. Having already exhibited in world renowned museums, galleries and auctions around the world, and been featured in numerous publications, including the iconic book, 'The Cult Of Lego'. Indeed, well-known as “Lego guy”, he uses these mass-produced molded smiling toy puppets, as a mean to transmit a message in his art prints.
Messages borrowed from the urban texture and aimed towards the society’s characteristics: economic abundance, consumerism and commercialization.
