Artist Love: Lego Man

Nathan Sawaya‘s lego work is more than say, kid’s play. It’s a sight to behold. A corporate lawyer by trade, he abandoned a life in the office to pursue his passion of building, specifically, Lego bricks. His love for building big scale sculptures earned him the nickname “Lego man”.

I wish i have the opportunity to see his works in person. The amazing detail and dynamic poses of some of his works are just amazing. I truly enjoy this guy’s vision and love for detail.

See more of his work with NYmag’s slideshow.

See more of his work in his exhibit BRICK BY BRICK: The LEGO Brick Sculpture of Nathan Sawaya ongoing right now until April 13, 2010 at AGORA Gallery. The gallery is located at 530 West 25th Street, near Tenth Avenue. The gallery is open Tuesday – Saturday, 11am – 6pm.
