THE LEGO WARRIORS REUNITE
PRIVATE VIEW: FRIDAY 21ST APRIL 2017 AT: ACQUA7 NUMBER 7 BALLS POND ROAD N1 6AX. 7PM – 10PM. EXHIBITION CLOSES SATURDAY 21ST MAY 2017.
Following the success of a visually arresting installation of brick art and photography, the Lego Warriors reunite for a second exhibition. Each warrior brokers the line between art and pop culture with portraits that tell a story of identity and duality. They are modern citizens masquerading as contemporary conquerors. The masks they wear represent the inner turmoil and conflict experienced as a result of being hidden.

ABOUT THE LEGO WARRIORS
THE LEGO WARRIORS is an original exhibition created and curated by collaborators award winning artist Bwoy Wonder and photographer Agenda. The Lego Warriors brokers the lines of art and pop culture with installations and portraits, which explore themes of personal identity and duality with masks created out of Lego. This mesmeric exhibition captures the powerful narrative of modern citizens in London whose alter egos possess the traits of contemporary warriors. Each one is caught in a battle to resolve inner turmoil and personal conflict through empowerment and self acceptance.
ABOUT THE CREATIVES
BWOY WONDER _ THE PLASTIC SURGEON
BWOY WONDER is the 2014 winner of Creative Pioneers run in conjunction with the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising and endorsed by Metro newspaper, and creative agencies such as Saatchi and Saatchi. A nationwide search to find the best creatives in the UK’s creative and digital media industry for entrepreneurship opportunities to kick-start their career in creativity.
“I am Bwoy Wonder, the Plastic Surgeon. As a child I didn’t possess the luxury of having many toys at my disposal, but the one toy I was blessed with having was my box of Lego.”
“Why buy a Transformer when you can build one yourself?, would be my fathers response whenever we wandered past a store. He had been buying me Lego for years to train my brain into thinking like an engineer but also to be creative with a dynamic and reusable medium. I never forgot that.”
AGENDA _ THE VISUAL MARVELIST
AGENDA of Visual Marvelry is a winner of the Canon photography award for his portrait work. A former graphic designer, who has worked with The Times and The Economist. Agenda is driven by the desire to encapsulate authenticity in a chosen moment, whilst dissolving anything that gets in the way of connecting with a great image. Cross fertilisation and collaborating with people to create something amazing is a key feature of his approach. He is a rich observer with a sniper’s eye for detail but an art director’s empathy for character and role. The final image is a personalised choreography, filmic in scale but a close-up of the person as an actor on their own stage.
THE LEGO WARRIORS
MEET THE LEGO WARRIORS, modern citizens in London who possess the traits of contemporary warriors. Each warrior and mask represents themes, which include patriotism, wisdom, wealth, creativity and religion.
