Huge sculptures and iconic artworks recreated using over one million LEGO bricks

New York artist Nathan Sawaya’s The Art of The Brick exhibition, currently on show at London’s Old Truman Brewery, is created using millions of LEGO building blocks and is unique in its scope which ranges from new conceptual pieces to replicas of iconic classical artwork.

Sawaya was the first artist to ever take LEGO into the art world, and is the author of two best selling books. His unique sculptures and touring exhibition is the first to focus exclusively on LEGO as an art medium and has broken attendance records around the globe. The creations, constructed from countless individual LEGO pieces, were built from standard bricks beginning as early as 2002.

Nathan Sawaya has earned a top position in the world of contemporary art and has created a new dimension by merging pop art and surrealism in awe inspiring and ground breaking ways. His art consists of playing with the material, colour, movement, light and perspective.

Those who get chance to visit will enjoy seeing over 100 pieces on display, which will forever change your view of what these little bricks can achieve. The exhibition has wowed audiences all over the world and is in the UK for the first time at the Old Truman Brewery until 12 April 2015.
