|Look! A "Legolized" me!|
"The Art of Brick" is Nathan Sawaya's largest collection of Lego sculptures. When asked about his masterpieces, Sawaya said, "These works are very personal to me since they reflect my growth as an artist as I strove to discover my creative identity."
The New York-based artist explains that his work of art is something that bridges anyone at any age to their interest for unique creations. "The museum exhibition is accessible because it engages the child in all of us while simultaneously illuminating sophisticated and complex concepts. Everyone can relate to the medium since it is a toy that many children have at home. But my goal with this exhibition when it first debuted in 2007 was to elevate this simple plaything to a place it has never been before."
Nathan Sawaya's latest show began yesterday at the Mansfield Art Center, Mansfield, Ohio. It will be from September 21, 2013 to November 16, 2013.
Here are a few of the very many shots that I took. Sawaya is touring the world and my wish is to take Cole to one of his shows someday.
