Modern LEGO Art by David Hughes

Architect turned professional LEGO artist (my dream job!) David Hughes builds wall mosaics and figurative sculptures from everyone’s favorite childhood toy, LEGO bricks. His colorful wall pieces bring the playfulness of childhood to contemporary subjects to result in visually dynamic pieces of modern art. With his three-dimensional pieces, Hughes manages to transform the idea of rigid, plastic blocks into graceful works that evoke movement. Take a look:
