The Art of the Brick: Outstanding LEGO Artworks by Nathan Sawaya
Nathan Sawaya is a New York based artist best known for his contemporary Lego art. Born in Colville, Washington and raised in Veneta, Oregon, Sawaya’s childhood consisted of drawing cartoons, writing stories, perfecting magic tricks and playing with Lego’s. After attending New York University, he rediscovered LEGO. Rather than using them as a toy, Sawaya realized that he could use Lego’s as his medium.
There are literally no limits to what he can create out of Lego’s. As a full-time freelance artist, Sawaya accepts commissions from individuals, corporations, and just about anyone with a good idea. He’s also builds and designs custom creations at events, photo shoots, and conventions. Currently Nathan has more than 1.5 million colored bricks in his New York art studio. His work is obsessively and painstakingly crafted and is both beautiful and playful.
