The Art of the Brick is a global touring exhibition rated by CNN as one of the world’s ‘must-see exhibitions’. This is the first art exhibition to focus exclusively on the use of Lego bricks as an art medium, and artist Nathan Sawaya has taken it to new heights. Opening on March 17th, Sawaya’s inventive creations will be showcased at the Centro Comercial Arenas in Plaça Espanya until June 12th.
The award-winning artist has multiple unique exhibitions created solely from standard Lego bricks and, with several new sculptures created specifically for each exhibition, Sawaya transforms these colourful toy pieces into whimsical and awe-inspiring creations. “These works are very personal to me, since they reflect my growth as an artist as I strove to discover my creative identity,” said Sawaya. “The museum exhibition is accessible because it engages the child in all of us, while simultaneously illuminating sophisticated and complex concepts.”
