Corner View is a weekly appointment - each Wednesday - created by Jane (Spain) and curated by Francesca (Italy), where bloggers from all corners of the world share their view on a pre-arranged theme.
This week’s theme is "before & after."
LEGOs are a long-time childhood favorite and I don’t know of a household with kids that doesn’t have a box of the simple, colorful bricks. Adults wax nostalgic and talk excitedly about the projects they built as a kid and you often see a gleam in the eyes of real LEGO-fanatics as they recall the many hours spent building their creations.
|before: imagine the possibilities!|
Nathan Sawaya is a New York-based artist who brings LEGO creations to an all-new level and we are fortunate that he is currently exhibiting some of his amazing sculptures here in Alamance County. We’re not talking your average LEGO sculptures. Nathan transforms this simple brick into amazing, whimsical pieces. One of his life-size human sculptures typically uses 15,000 to 25,000 bricks and in his art studio he has a stock of over 2.5 million LEGO bricks. Nathan left his job as an NYC attorney in 2004 and is credited as the first person to bring LEGOs into the art world. He is not an employee of the LEGO company, but is a professional, full-time brick artist.
