Turning LEGO into ART

As a kid I always loved LEGO, and up until recently so did my kids. Unfortunately LEGO went from packages filled with regular bricks that could be used to build whatever your imagination came up with to larger pre-shaped bricks that strongly limited those possibilities.

Lately I’ve seen more and more boxes of the good-old LEGO bricks for sale, and the childhood memories started flashing again. With any luck I’ll convince my youngest (almost 2) to start playing with LEGO, as I believe it’s a great way to enhance creativity and challenge the imagination.

To further illustrate what I’m talking about have a look at Nathan Sawaya’s fine artwork. Sawaya actually left a career as a lawyer to become a LEGO artist (the lawyers are really making to much aren’t they…).
