This weekend my brother came to visit, and since he is a massive Lego fan I decided to take him to the ART OF THE BRICK exhibition by Nathan Sawaya in Brick Lane (very fitting!) The exhibition included over 80 art sculptures which was created by millions of Lego building blocks – a recipe for success in my eyes.

I have always been interested in Lego, as from a young age my parent would take us on holiday’s to Lego Land in Denmark almost every summer. I like how versatile the bricks are, that you can create almost anything out of these simple, colorful blocks and the fact that they have become a design classic & a must-have for kids all ages.

The exhibition was great, almost like a Lego Land for grown ups. It was fun to go through the different rooms which all had different themes. My favorite area was where he showcased his Lego versions of classic paintings such as Mona Lisa & Scream. My brother’s highlight was probably the last room where the audience was encouraged to play.

I would recommend this exhibition for anyone who likes Lego..and who doesn’t?
