An Immersive LEGO Exhibition Is Coming to London

See some of the world’s most famous masterpieces rendered in brick

London is no stranger to immersive exhibitions featuring the works of iconic artists – we’ve got one running on Van Gogh, another on Monet and there’s a whole digital gallery filled with masterpieces – but this one is taking things up a notch through the use of LEGO. The Art of The Brick, appropriately opening on Brick Lane, will feature more than 90 LEGO sculptures – that amounts to over a million bricks – that reinterpret some of the most recognisable artworks on the planet, including Michelangelo’s ‘David’, Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’, Da Vinci’s ‘Mona Lisa’, Gustav Klimt’s ‘The Kiss’ and Edvard Munch’s ‘The Scream’.

The exhibition is the work of artist Nathan Sawaya, who is also displaying some of his original pieces in the show, like a giant version of his ‘Yellow’ sculpture and ‘Perniciem’, which showcases endangered species in their natural environments. The works will be accompanied by 3D video mapping and a musical score, and there’ll also be a play and build area where you’ll be able to make your own LEGO creations.
