We’ve shared our fascination with Legos before (here and here and here), but we’d be remiss to not mention New York-based artist Nathan Sawaya. He has taken the use of Legos as an art medium to a whole new level. With more than 1.5 million colored bricks in his New York art studio at any given time, Sawaya painstakingly transforms these tiny bricks into incredible sculptures. “These works are very personal to me, since they reflect my growth as an artist as I strove to discover my creative identity,” says Sawaya. Be sure to check out his traveling exhibition, The Art of the Brick, currently touring North America and Australia.
