If you love LEGO® and superheroes, then you’re going to love this. Artist Nathan Sawaya is heading to London with the world’s largest LEGO® exhibition inspired by Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman.
Following an incredibly successful run in Madrid, The Art of the Brick: DC Super Heroes will make its London return on 1st March 2017. The contemporary art exhibition will be shown in an exclusively built space on London’s South Bank. Together with Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, the well-known and celebrated artist Nathan Sawaya has created the world’s largest collection of artwork inspired by DC’s Justice League, including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, alongside DC Super-Villains the Joker, Harley Quinn and more.
To kids and adults who love LEGO, Sawaya is a bit of a superhero. For the last decade, the former lawyer- turned- artist has elevated the simple toy to highly sought-after artwork, and has inspired countless kids to think outside of the box. Sawaya has turned to the stories of superheroes for his own inspiration in this exhibition that features LEGO sculptures that emulate DC’s legendary characters, vehicles, surroundings and themes that are present in the DC mythology.
The exhibition includes more than 120 original pieces, created exclusively from LEGO bricks, including a life-size Batmobile (5.5 meters) and built from half a million standard pieces. Sawaya has captured on a real scale some of the most iconic Super Heroes and Super-Villains from DC, exploring more than 80 years of history.
