photographer jeff friesen, creator of the brick fantastic series, has completed a new collection of LEGO dioramas. ‘bricksy’ recreates the popular urban works of street artist banksy out of the colored blocks, piecing together the hand-crafted scenes with tiny interconnecting parts. from the familiar image of the girl with the heart balloon to the maid lifting up a piece of the wall, each public work is rendered in LEGO, reinterpreting the public artworks on a small scale and with a nostalgic twist. introduced into each small site are friesen’s own extensions of the set, imagining what else might be taking place. for example, the street artist’s iconic bouquet thrower secretly throws the flowers in his grip to his girlfriend, a police officer just on the other end of the photo. take a look below for some of the images in the series.
