From May 14 to Aug 30, after having toured the world, the exhibit featuring Nathan Sawaya’s Lego sculptures will have a new home in Paris at the Porte de Versailles.
Called the Art Of Brick, the exhibition showcases stunning works that would defy belief that they were made out of Lego bricks. Here are 5 works you need to see.
The exhibit presents more than 100 incredible works of art created with Lego bricks. In all, Nathan Sawaya used more than one million bricks.
A dinosaur in the exhibit used 80,020 bricks to come to life.
Though some of the works on exhibit are creations born from the artist’s imagination, others are inspired by renowned works of art such as Rodin’s The Thinker, the Venus De Milo, the north transept portals of the Chartres Cathedral and Edward Munch’s The Scream.
Opened in New York in 2007, the Lego exhibit has welcomed more than two million visitors around the world. Presented in Australia, in Asia and then in Europe in 2014, it traveled to Brussels, Amsterdam and Rome before coming to Paris. – AFP Relaxnews
