nathan sawaya: brick by brick
agora gallery, new york
march 23rd – april 13th, 2010
LEGO brick artist nathan sawaya‘s ‘brick by brick’ is the first solo exhibition of his art works,
comprised entirely of LEGO bricks, in new york. sawaya quit his job as a corporate lawyer
back in 2001 to pursue his childhood fascination with the ubiquitous building blocks,
transforming them into an artistic medium. he has used LEGO’s shapes and bright colors
to develop a range of sculptures including pop culture icons, the human form, planets.
he’s even created a life-sized self-portrait, expressing the limitless possibilities of this medium.
love is a funny thing. sometimes it is heartfelt. sometimes it is heartache. sometimes it is just heartburn.
