LEGO genius, artist Nathan Sawaya is at it again. His latest larger-than-life project has reimagined your favorite DC Comics stars in LEGO bricks. His next exhibition, Art of the Brick: DC Comics, opens this November at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Australia, before making a world tour.
Earlier this month, lucky visitors to San Diego’s Comic-Con were treated to a sneak peek of Sawaya’s latest creations that will head to the museum in Australia. Sawaya, along with DC Entertainment co-publisher and artist Jim Lee, talked to crowds about the perfect pairing of America’s most popular building toy, and the superhero legacy that is DC Comics.
When thinking about his next exhibition, Sawaya was inspired to explore the idea of good versus evil. Having already created a giant sculpture of Catwoman for the We Can Be Heroes campaign, he decided to illustrate good versus evil with characters from classic comics.
Like his other exhibitions, Art of the Brick: DC Comics will cover a vast array of characters, and likely involved millions of LEGO bricks. Already slated for the line up, and shown at Comic-Con, are variations of Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman.
Sawaya plans to let fans get up close and personal with all of their favorite superheroes… and super villains.
