The texts of Legoramart are both written in french and english.
f LEGO bricks aren't used any more as toys but as means of artistic expression, if artists from various background get to use the brick as a medium for their art, does it mean that a LEGO art is emerging?
Behind this somewhat serious question, we discovered a flourishing artistic landscape that we were eager to share with you.
We soon found an obvious title for our project : LEGORAMART.
Finding an author that would investigate on LEGO art was our next step... Laurent turned out to be the ideal person for this part. He was involved in the project from the beginning and had already collaborated on the writing of many books, as an author as well as as a story writer. Besides, he has a sharp eye when it comes to photography and does a wonderful job on books illustrations.
Laurent and I designed together the editorial scope of LEGORAMART contents, starting with an richly illustrated introduction that describes what is and what is not LEGO art. Then we picked out some artists who, in our opinion, are representative of current trends in various fields – photography, sculpture, design, etc.
Here is the list – inevitably subjective! – we came up with:
Cole Blaq, Jason Freeny, Nathan Sawaya, Mike Stimpson, Dean West and Angus McLane.
Each artist is presented through an interview (by Laurent Bramardi) and a selection of what we found to be particularly representative of their work. 12 to 16 pages are dedicated to each of them.
