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.

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.

Wolverine minifig street art in Brighton, England

While I’m obligated every time I highlight graffiti to say that I don’t condone vandalism, I love to see great street art. This photo by clockity shows the artist’s progress as he squeezes Wolverine in between some larger pieces.

Have any of our readers in Brighton seen this in person? Know who the artist is?

LEGO spaceship art by Mike Yoder

If you are familiar with Mike Yoder at all, then you know that he not only builds a mean LEGO spaceship, but he is also a gifted painter. Well Mike certainly has proven both of these points with his latest project…an acrylic on canvas painting of his Calamity Jane starship.

CJ1 Deep Space Trucker: Framed

I don’t recall a spaceship ever looking so beautiful.

Beautiful LEGO bonsai

Japanese artist Azuma Makoto usually creates his botanically themed pieces from real plants, but occasionally dabbles with materials as diverse as Astroturf and LEGO. One of his latest pieces is a gorgeous recreation of a bonsai pine tree built from bricks.
