LEGO Just Got Epic


What's the best LEGO structure you have ever seen? For me it is a toss up between a LEGO theme park with ferris wheels and roller coasters rides, and a cause and effect structure similar to the Mouse Trap board game.

Both of these pale in comparison to the sculptures by Nathan Sawaya. The American artist began playing with LEGO as a child, just like all of us. The only difference is, he never stopped, and his creations kept getting bigger and better.

From new conceptual pieces to replicas of iconic classical artwork, Sawaya's collection includes a giant hand, a person removing their head, and a T-Rex made from eighty thousand blocks. He has toured New York, Los Angeles, Melbourne, Shanghai, Singapore, and now he has come to London. The Art of the Brick exhibition features eighty-five sculptures created from more than a million LEGO blocks, and includes an Interactive Zone where visitors can get hands on with the artworks, and build their own LEGO masterpiece.



The exhibit will remain on display at The Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane until the 4th January 2015, with tickets costing between 14.50-16.50 for adults, 11-13 concessions, and 8-9.50 for kids. Prices are more expensive at the weekend.
