LEGO® constructions: the great passion of Nathan Sawaya

Who has never played with LEGO® buildings in his childhood? If you were born after the ’60s it is definitely like this! For some, the passion for building LEGO® is a lifelong one. This is the case of the American artist Nathan Sawaya, who has created works of art with the famous bricks.

The vision of Nathan Sawaya on his work in LEGO®

The former lawyer Nathan Sawaya has characterized his work saying that it is for the child who is inside every man and he indicates the LEGO® brick as an unifying toy, accessible to anyone.
On his inspiration, he added:
« My favorite subject is the human form. Much of my work suggests a transitional figure, it represents the metamorphosis that I experienced in my life. My works come from my fears and my successes as a lawyer or as an artist, as a boy or as a man. «
