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.

According to journalist Scott Jones, “Sawaya is a surrealist mash-up of forms and artists. Imagine Frank Lloyd Wright crossed with Ray Harryhausen, or Auguste Rodin crossed with Shigeru Miyamoto, and you start to get a sense of where Sawaya is coming from.”

Nathan’s art form takes shape primarily in 3-dimensional sculptures and oversized portraits. He continues to create daily while accepting commission work from around the world. Today we collected some of his best works for you to enjoy.
