I don't care who you are, everyone loves legos! Nathan Sawaya, a 33-year-old New York artist and ex-lawyer, is exhibiting more than thirty works created solely from standard LEGO bricks over the period 2002 - 2007 with several new ones created specifically for this exhibit. Nearly one million colorful LEGO pieces transformed into whimsical and awe-inspiring images are on display.
"These works are very personal to me, since they reflect my growth as an artist as I strove to discover my creative identity," said Sawaya. "The museum exhibit is accessible because it engages the child in all of us while simultaneously illuminating sophisticated and complex concepts."
Some of my favorites:
Colbert and Sawaya...
I bet these are even more impressive in person.
