“I try to explore new things and develop my imagination building some model with no existing reference, just as I feel it.”
35 year old IBN_SPIROU from Charleroi in Belgium has always been interested in building with LEGO bricks. He got his first LEGO bricks at the age of 4 and has for the past 10 years been Adult Fan of LEGO. He is now an active member of the LEGO User Group Chti Lug located in Northern France.
IBN_SPIROU works as a Java programmer for the Belgian Social Security, and in his spare time he builds LEGO models from micro builds to large dioramas.
“I'm very Sci-Fi oriented but it's not exclusive. I build many things, I especially like building models from movies or animated series from my childhood, in the 80's or modern.“
For IBN_SPIROU building with LEGO bricks is more than just building, it also helps him develop other skills.
“It helps develop my patience, creativity, and my sense to find solutions.”
The building themes are very various but often it is movie themes and TV shows that are influences.
“Star wars of course, but also things like Jurassic Park, Robocop, and The Cosmocats."
"Lastly we built a Walking Dead themed diorama with 5 friends from my LEGO User Group it size 10m² with the main scenes from the TV show, I think we did a great job on it.”
“I live in a 70m² apartment. Last month I was finishing my Walking Dead diorama and the house was really plenty of LEGO bricks everywhere. Almost scary:-)”
