Don’t miss one of the most fascinating exhibitions ever come to London, The Art of the Brick® by US brick artist Nathan Sawaya who used more than a million LEGO® pieces to produce over 80 artworks. I have tried to capture the uniqueness of each masterpiece through my camera lens but they don’t really give a sense for the brilliance of this new form of art. Enjoy these images (only a handful just to give you a taster of the exhibition)!

These one-of-a-kind LEGO brick sculptures are the work of US artist Nathan Sawaya. The exhibition is hosted at The Old Truman Brewery, East London’s revolutionary arts and media quarter – for a limited season from Friday 26 September 2014 until Sunday 4 January 2015.
Tickets are available from www.artofthebrick.co.uk or at 0207 492 5374.
The Art of the Brick has been proclaimed by CNN as one of the world’s 10 must see exhibitions and has already attracted millions of visitors worldwide in New York, Los Angeles, Melbourne, Shanghai and Singapore.
The artworks on display are large scale sculptures many of which are human figures such as Sawaya’s most famous piece Yellow and also includes a TRex skeleton Dinosaur constructed from over 80,000 LEGO bricks that measures over six metres in length. In addition, visitors will have a chance to see Sawaya’s recent interpretations of some of the world’s most famous artworks, such as Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo and Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring.
The exhibition includes an Interactive Zone inviting younger (and older) visitors to explore their creativity using the iconic bricks.
