As you can see, Sawaya is somewhat of a LEGO art savant — his New York studio is currently filled with 1.5 million colored bricks. He makes everything from human figures to architectural models to portraits out of the colorful toy bricks, delighting kids and adults alike with his creations. And we were impressed to hear him say in a recent interview on New York Nonstop that many of the LEGO pieces he uses are recycled.

Sawaya’s creations are currently touring North America as a show called “The Art of the Brick”. The exhibition is the only one of its kind focusing exclusively on LEGO as an art medium. The works that are part of the show were constructed using close to one million LEGOs. You can check to see if The Art of the Brick is coming to a museum near you here.
