Unlike others who paint, write or use clay to express themselves, an artist in Manhattan Nathan Sawaya, uses toy building blocks to make beautiful art. His work sells for tens-of-thousands of dollars. For the record, he spends more than $100,000 on Lego’s each year. With more than 1.5 million colored bricks in his New York studio, Sawaya’s sculptures take many forms, and now you can have your very own full-size scale Lego replica of yourself or a loved one for the measly sum of $60,000.
All I could do out of my Lego bricks were creating the house that the instruction book showed. This guy proves that there is a lot more one can do with a few bricks of Lego’s.
