The Boiler House in East London has been home to many cool art exhibitions thus far, and come March, it may just be welcoming the coolest one yet. Given the street on which it sits – the famed Brick Lane – it’s almost destiny that The Art Of The Brick exhibition is set to make its London debut here, bringing with it over 150 sculptures made entirely of LEGO®.
Following the announcement of its arrival in the capital last week, The Art Of The Brick has garnered a ton of interest; and today, tickets finally go on sale. If its international popularity is anything to go by, this LEGO® exhibition is surely unmissable – we even have some unique sculptures you may have missed if you caught the exhibit elsewhere.
So, why should you buy tickets to this LEGO® exhibition?
Corporate-lawyer-turned-contemporary-artist Nathan Sawaya welcomes us into his imagination, with over 150 of his fantastical LEGO® creations on display. Some of the world’s most famous artworks have received the LEGO® treatment: did you ever expect to see Michelangelo’s David, or Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, made out of the much-loved colourful bricks? The patience and dedication Sawaya has is astounding.
Elsewhere at the exhibition, you’ll find a 20-foot dinosaur skeleton, again, made purely out of LEGO® bricks, alongside an impressive piece of over 250 moving skulls. This kinetic installation uses light and sound to give the impression that it is endless; London is only the second city to display the piece, despite this exhibition touring over 100 cities worldwide so far.
From Sydney to Shanghai, Miami to Milan, over 10 million people have visited Art Of The Brick, citing its magnificence and originality. Over one million bricks are used to create the sculptures, and there’ll be a few hundred more available for you to have a go at building yourself on your visit. So, what are you waiting for? Book your tickets to this LEGO® exhibition today, and let the anticipation build for The Art Of The Brick’s opening in March.
