Originally from Manila, Philippines but now living in Sydney, Australia, brickly artist ThirdWorldLego (real name Robert Panga) creates colorful, joyous scenes on a tiny scale. An AFOL since 2011, Panga was first drawn back into bricks by his interest in LEGO comics. This eventually snowballed into his work with 8x8
I can’t remember a time before I was building with bricks. As a child, I loved spending afternoons with my brother constructing sets and then planning our cities to stitch together different baseplates to create anachronistic societies where pirates could be warded off by knights defending a space ship.
