Lego Brick Artist Nathan Sawaya

Nathan Sawaya is a lego artist, which means that making lego sculptures is his main medium.

His gallery is at http://www.brickartist.com/lego-art/gray.html


Nathan came to my attention when he was featured at the BASF booth at an agricultural show. See the video below.










As Lego art goes, I find Nathan's stuff to be about the best. Here is a lego art gallery.












Finally, there is the Han Solo in Carbonite, also by Nathan.  Link.



Nathan's stuff is better than many lego pieces primarily because the pieces are bigger, and the image is more sculpted. 

It is still a gimmick. I expect he could make something nicer by carving wood or wax. On the other hand, I have never done post on regular sculpture.
