A COLLABORATION BETWEEN STUDIO MARVELRY AND @LONCONNOISSEUR
A CURATED SERIES IN LIMITED NUMBERS
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.
THE LEGO WARRIORS series was originally developed for an exhibition created and curated by collaborators award winning artist Bwoy Wonder and photographer Agenda Brown. The Lego Warriors brokers the lines of art and pop culture combining installation and portraiture, exploring themes of personal identity and duality with masks created out of Lego.
Agenda was inspired by Bwoy Wonder’s Lego masks to create a mesmeric series of images which capture 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. Agenda matched his sitters to the masks, believing that each one drew out aspects of the individual character. LEGO WARRIORS continues Agenda’s fascination for and exploration of persona through the photographic image.
The Lego Warriors was featured in The Guardian, It’s Nice That and Let’s Be Brief, and exhibited at London Fashion Week, The Library Private Members Club, and Acqua 7 Dalston.
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.

“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.”

The paper is resin coated with a fibrous feel. The satin finish of the resin coating gives depth to the image which combined with the texture and vibrant colour reproduction give the image the feel of an oil painting.
