The British city of Carlisle has been getting a splash of colour through LEGO street art. In Carlisle, the street artist James Ame \u2013 better known as Ame72 \u2013 has created two murals with a LEGO theme. He has also been referred to as \u201cthe LEGO guy\u201d thanks to his minifigure art. His work has appeared around the world, from New York to Tel Aviv. Ben Heslop, who runs the Edwin Talbot Gallery and Landmark Street Art, explained to News and Star why he brought Ame to Carlisle. \u201cAme has recently been painting the LEGO studios in LA. We want people who would not normally get this kind of exposure to have a look at street art.\u201d Ame has exhibited around the world, alongside some of the most famous historical artists. \u201cMaking art has its highs and lows, frustration and elation, but above all, it\u2019s a lot of fun to create something from a few bits of card and a bag of spray paint,\u201d he once said. \u201cWe have some more street artists coming to the city in the first quarter of 2019. One of them is going to do something that will blow everything else out of the water,\u201d said Heslop. Those in the Carlisle area can find Ame\u2019s work off Chapel Street.
