When LEGO launched their Art theme it included a tile-based mosaic take on the iconic Marilyn Monroe panel-art by Andy Warhol. And that was pretty cool…back then. But now artist Michelle Krüger has placed her own unique spin on this classic image, adding texture that introduces an entirely new depth to things.
Taking a close look at one of the panels, you can see the wide array of parts chosen to create the illusion of Marilyn’s face and hair. I’m also fond of the use of transparent elements in the background to add a bit of color variation to the formerly flat shading. It’s still recognizable as a Warhol tribute, but also uniquely its own work of art. Stunning!
