Ramblings about entertainment, lifestyle and travel
Following a successful run in Madrid, The Art Of The Brick: DC Super Heroes has opened its doors to the public in London. A few years back I visited LEGO’s first Art of the Brick exhibition in London and it was one of the best exhibitions down to the sheer scale of lego used. Together with Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, the well-known and celebrated artist Sawaya has now 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.
Through a series of immersive galleries, The Art Of The Brick: DC Super Heroes showcases Sawaya’s interpretations on characters, vehicles, environments and themes found throughout DC Super Heroes mythology including transformation and reinvention, strength and weakness, as well as good vs. evil.
To kids and adults who love LEGO, Sawaya is a bit of a super hero. 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 super heroes for his own inspiration in this exhibition — The Art Of The Brick: DC Super Heroes – that features LEGO sculptures that emulate DC’s legendary characters, vehicles, surroundings and themes that are present in the DC mythology.
The Art Of The Brick: DC Super Heroes 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.
The exhibition is open until September 2017, with tickets starting at £16.50 for adults.
