We have posted a lot of album covers over the years but this particular one, by Isaac Mazer is one of the best. The fact that he was able to get the perspective so perfect is amazing. It is so good that I didn’t realize it was actually a mosaic…incredible! Many thanks to Katie Walker Continue reading →
LEGO Art models on The Brothers Brick | Page 2
Some LEGO builders elevate the form to fine art in its own right, while others enjoy reproducing famous works of art with the brick. Find beautiful and thought-provoking LEGO artwork right here.
Mike Doyle, known for his decayed Victorian houses, launched a Kickstarter project to fund his next creation. For your support, Mike is offering framable prints of the finished creation along with actual brick-built details from the model.
Bruce Lowell‘s art deco depiction of the Dark Knight is a beautifully composed artwork of the brick. If you like it, also check out the other art deco batman creation by Dave Kaleta.
Can you Believe that the first photo below is a color-inverted image? That’s because the actual creation is built out of an inverted color scheme! It’s one of the recent innovations by Siercon and Coral.
Joel Midgley (Greybrick) just posted a LEGO version of the cover art from U2′s 1983 album War. This is a “studs up” rather than the usual “studs out” LEGO mosaic, which allows Joel to have finer control over diagonal angles in places like the lettering, as well as a samller “pixel” with the side of Continue reading →
LEGO community coordinator Kevin Hinkle is apparently also a talented artist. Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s 1487 drawing “Vitruvian Man” (itself inspired by earlier work by the architect Vitruvius), Kevin has drawn the idealized proportions of the LEGO minifigure. I love how Kevin even signed the drawing from right to left.
Ericmok from Hong Kong built a scene from Romance of the Three Kingdoms in the style of a Chinese painting, using monochrome shades to mimic the effect of a painting in black ink. The scroll background is a perfect way to frame the scene, making it very presentable. His jade seal is also worthy of Continue reading →
In April, a life-sized Lego forest featuring giant sculptures of Lego plants showed up in Sydney as part of Australia’s “Festival of Play.” Since then the sculptures have migrated to a desert landscape in New South Wales. Check out the article on BuzzFeed for a video of the scene. Via Toys N Bricks
If you happen to live in Wuppertal, Germany you are lucky enough to get to cross an actual LEGO bridge. Well I suppose it is just a regular bridge painted to look like LEGO by street artist Megx, but it would still be awesome to cross. Cheers to Will Page for the heads up :D
That fantastic gentleman of steampunkery, Guy H., aka V&A Steamworks, has concocted a plan wherewith he shall mix up our plastic toys with our card playing and brass goggling. His latest endeavor is a Kickstarter project to fund the creation of a terrifically designed full deck of Steampunk Lego playing cards. He’s packed it out Continue reading →
With the mentioning of cheese slope mosaics, one name stands out, which is none other than Katie Walker (eilonwy77). She has just wrote a detailed and illustrated article showing techniques and ample examples of what can be accomplished in the field of mosaics with these tiny angled parts. Check it out on MosaicBricks.
Marcin and Przemek are brothers from Poland who draw a stylized depiction of a classic Lego set each week. Check out their latest: 6649 Street Sweeper. You can see more on their Flickr gallery or blog.
Mike Doyle (!snap!) has just posted a rather amazing piece of art. The depressing and horrifying subject matter of this piece is almost intensified by the choice of medium…LEGO is after all associated with innocence and happiness. I will let the viewer interpret and reflect on its meaning on their own. Thanks to Jack for Continue reading →
While I would consider many things we post here to be Lego Art, there are few pieces of art featuring Lego. There are certainly some great illustrators out there who feature Lego frequently in their work, it’s still exciting to find another. Enter these illustrations by Bobofrutx, he’s taken classic sets and drawn them in Continue reading →
Escher’s Relativity has been made in Lego multiple times in the theme of space and castle, and now Paul Vermeesch puts a Star Wars twist on it.
