Art of the Brick

A few months back I attended Nathan Sawaya’s ART OF THE BRICK exhibition. This incredible exhibition was created with millions of LEGO building blocks. Nathan was the first artist to ever take LEGO into the art world and in his own words...

“I like using LEGO bricks as a medium because I enjoy seeing people’s reaction to artwork created from something with which they are familiar. My goal is to elevate this simple plaything to a place it has never been before. I also appreciate the cleanliness of the LEGO® brick. The right angles. The distinct lines. But, from a distance, those right angles and distinct lines offer new perspectives, changing to curves.”
