Do you know how painful it is to step on a LEGO™ brick? It’s painful. No. Actually, it’s very painful. And I know. Because I’ve done it. So many times. Of course this was during my childhood.
It’s funny how a small, plastic brick could transport you to worlds you’d never known, make you more creative than you had ever imagined you’d be and entertain you to no end. For hours. LEGO™ has never lost its magic for me. Anything connected to it excites me, makes smile, makes me giggle. Because it brings me back to the carefree days of my childhood. If you think about it, LEGO™ was the most amazing toy, if you were fortunate enough to have a set.
Nathan Sawaya is a New York-based artist who creates three-dimensional sculptures made completely out of LEGO™ bricks. He has a touring exhibition called The Art of the Brick featuring his most popular LEGO™ creations. I had the good fortune to be able to go and see all his sculptures. And it was amazing!
The taking of photographs was highly encouraged so take photographs I did! I can’t really say which one was my favourite although his 3D version of Gustav Klimt’s Der Küss is a forerunner! I’ve posted all the photos that I have on my Pinterest board, so feel free to have a look-see!
