Ah, LEGO®. Young or old, these boldly coloured blocks quite literally build dreams and take you into a world of pure imagination. Well, corporate-lawyer-turned-contemporary-artist Nathan Sawaya will welcome us into his imagination this March at The Art Of The Brick: The Exhibition opens on Brick Lane, London.
From Sydney to Shanghai, Miami to Milan, over 10 million people worldwide have been delighted by Sawaya’s fantastical LEGO® creations as The Art Of The Brick: The Exhibition has toured over 100 countries around the globe. We’re excited that there’ll be a limited-time-only stop in London; the LEGO® exhibition is surely unmissable.
What artworks can you see at this LEGO® art exhibition in London?
In The Art Of The Brick: The Exhibition, you’ll see over 150 works of art, created out of individual LEGO® bricks – all together, over one million bricks are used for this exhibition! The exhibit includes a variety of sculptures, some reimagining the world’s most famous artworks: expect to see the likes of Michelangelo’s David, Van Gogh’s Starry Night and Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.
Elsewhere, you’ll find a 20-foot dinosaur skeleton, again, made purely out of LEGO® bricks. Genuinely, I cannot fathom the patience it must have taken to build this sculpture. Arguably though, the pièce de résistance is the kinetic skulls installation. London is only the second city to exhibit this impressive piece of over 250 skulls that move in a sea of waves. It uses light and sound to make it look like it’s going on forever.
At the end of the exhibit, it’s over to you: you can have a go at building something magnificent out of LEGO®.
The Art Of The Brick: The Exhibition will be open six days a week (closed on Tuesdays) and be located at The Boiler House, which has been home to some pretty cool art exhibitions over the years. Could this be the best yet? You’ll need to visit to find out!
