Toronto based Ekow Nimako is an internationally exhibiting artist who works with only black LEGO blocks. He crafts futuristic and whimsical sculptures from this iconic medium. Rooted in his childhood hobby and intrinsic creativity, Nimako’s formal arts education and background as a lifelong multidisciplinary artist inform his process and signature aesthetic.
His fluid building style, coupled with the Afrofuturistic themes of his work, beautifully transcend the geometric medium to embody organic and fantastical silhouettes. His sculptures are inspired by a mix of history and imagination.
