With a background in graphic design, innovation and technology, James Ame is a full-time artist who does street art all around the globe.

Ame72 (pronounced Aim) is his ‘street’ name, the 3 middle letters of his first name followed by the year he was born (it’s an old skool graffiti thing.)
Ame72 has had the opportunity to exhibit artworks in renowned Museums, Galleries, Art Fairs and Auctions around the world, alongside world renowned artists such as Warhol, Hirst, Banksy and even Picasso and been featured in numerous publications, including the iconic books, ‘Untitled Street Art’ and ‘The Cult Of Lego’. With ever increasing popularity, Ame72’s works have gained a diverse following of collectors; from adult Lego fans to Hollywood celebrities, Royalty and even the discernible collector who prefers to remove works from the street.

He is inspired by emotion and reaction, to create art which releases an emotional response and then for the viewer to react to it. “Making art has it’s highs and lows, frustration and elation, but above all it’s the euphoria of creating something from nothing into something I can look at which makes me feel alive.” -Ame72.
