The “Afrofuturism” contest started with Lego ideas.LEGO IDEAS Contest Page

What kind of work wanted?

We are looking for works with the theme of Afrofuturism.

Ekow Nimako, a Ghanaian Canadian Lego artist who is collaborating this time, works on this theme.

What kind of category is Afrofuturism?

To be honest, I’m not so familliar with Afrofuturism, but perhaps to put it simply, I think Future science fiction-themed art genre that reflects African traditions and culture. I think Marvel’s Wakanda is one of them.

For those who want to get a little better understanding, get inspiration from Nimako’s Instagram and website.

Win the Prize!

The following luxury spaceship set and one of Mr. Nimako’s works will be given to the Grand Prix winners as prizes. There are also prizes for the two semi-grand prix. The prizes are carefully selected by Mr. Nimako, who loves spaceships.

  • 75252 Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer
