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.

Sci-Fi LEGO that is just plain stylish

If I were to describe the work of Jonas (LEGOLIZE IT MAN) I think the most appropriate word would be ‘stylish’. It is relatively easy to make a LEGO spaceship and take a picture of it. It is another thing altogether to make it look legitimately cool. Perhaps I am biased, but I would tend to think that your average person seeing this (whether being a LEGO fan or not) would say, “Well that looks rad!”

If Jonas were to publish a coffee table book full of prints of his work, I would buy it immediately. I would read it…and then I would be inspired to build cool LEGO sci-fi things.

I like it when people’s builds make me want a coffee table book full of them.

LEGO Macaw takes flight in a burst of iridescent plumage

Sean and Steph Mayo (AKA Siercon and Coral) have gained lots of altitude with their latest creation. The Macaw itself is incredible but the studio setting they have created highlights it very nicely. I also really love the signature in the bottom left corner of the “painting” and you have to admit that the Pick-a-Brick cup full of water is nice touch. My only questions is whether or not the cup is filled with official LEGO water…

Hail to the new King!

Many of you may have missed it, but it was hard to miss in the Netherlands, my home country: since yesterday we have a new king and queen: King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima (yes, that is the name given to her by her parents). This momentous occasion prompted Paul Toxopeus (P@u! +ox) to build these wonderful portraits.

Portraits of the new king and queen of the Netherlands

Considering the limits of the colour palette, these are surprisingly recognisable. Hail to the new King!

LEGO is art in more ways than one

No doubt that LEGO has been used as an artistic medium in and of itself. But I always get a huge kick out of artists using their LEGO creations as subject matter within another medium.

Case in point LEGOLIZE IT MAN’s inclusion of his Working Class Hero in this t-shirt design that he created for Swedish punk rock band Twopointeight.

I love seeing high quality LEGO builds, but I think I love seeing those designs crossing outside our niche even more.

And just in case anyone is interested in buying one…

Lego Accessories for the Sophisticated Gentleman by Bruce Lowell

“What’s this fine looking man doing on the front page of The Brothers Brick?” you say. “He doesn’t look like Lego!” Well, no, Bruce Lowell isn’t made of Lego, though we do suspect liquified ABS runs in his veins. His accoutrements are, however, made of Lego. Look closely, and you’ll see that the tie, tie clip, boutonniere, cuff links, belt, and even pocket square are all one-hundred percent brick. Bruce has pioneered an excellent way to show off your inner geek and look dashing doing it.
