Nathan Sawaya..

I will always notice when artists use legos.. I was quite the obsessed little kid. I even transformed my closet into a "lego room" and would lock myself in there for sometimes an entire day, no joke. So it's not a surprise when Nathan Sawaya caught my eye the other day.

Nathan Sawaya is a New York-based artist who's most recent North American museum tour "The Art of the Brick" features large-scale sculptures using only lego bricks.Born in Colville, Washington and raised in Veneta, Oregon, Sawaya’s childhood dreams were always fun. He drew cartoons, wrote stories and perfected magic tricks. Of course much of his playtime centered on the emerging LEGO City he created in his parent’s living room. For more than twelve years the LEGO City flourished. And this is where Sawaya’s imagination soared, and consequently fine-tuned his future art form. Enjoy.
