Everything in the room, aside from the actual floor and walls, was made from LEGOs [3] right down to the cello (which can actually be played). The drawers may look simplistic, but get this – they actually open and close! Sawaya builds his blocky creations in his NYC [6] studio, which is currently filled with nearly 1.5 million LEGOs. Instead of using new materials, most of the bricks he uses are reclaimed from kids who have outgrown them.

If you’d like to check out Sawaya’s brick art with your own two eyes, check out “The Art of the Brick,” [7] an exhibition of his works that is currently touring the US. According to Sawaya, approximately one million LEGOs were used to craft the works in the show.
