It took 4 188 hours and more than 1 million colourful LEGO bricks to build the 78 pieces of LEGO art displayed at the “Art of the Brick” exhibition, currently underway in Cape Town.
American lawyer-turned-LEGO artist Nathan Sawaya yesterday showcased his amazing works of brick art at the Art of the Brick exhibition launch at the city’s V&A Waterfront.
With an air of 8-bit in physical form, the plastic brick creations are all presented in different rooms — from the intense Human Condition to Portraits and Historical Sculptures.
Built with both adults and kiddies in mind, the Art of the Brick sets out to be testament to the supreme creativity and joy of one of the world`s most popular inventions.
“Art is not optional,” Sawaya said. “Everyone should take some time out of their day to do something creative, even if it’s just finger painting with your kids for half an hour.”
