NYCC ’10 | Watch out for Lego art

Lego fans and comics fans seem to overlap quite a bit in the Venn diagram of life, so it’s not too surprising that Lego artist Nathan Sawaya has chosen to bring his Lego stylings to New York Comic-Con next weekend. From the press release:

Yellow, by Nathan Sawaya

Spanning the floor of the Javits Center, Nathan’s life-size LEGO people tell stories, bring emotion and make people smile.

His most iconic sculpture – Yellow – depicts a man with LEGO cascading out of his open chest cavity and will be on public display for the very first time other than in fine art museums.

Other sculptures will be created live for Comicon attendees.

Sawaya will be at booth 401 if you want to see the magic up close—and it sounds like his sculptures will be hard to avoid. I just hope he has secured them somehow, so con-goers don’t succumb to the temptation to rearrange things a bit.



I cannot wait to meet Nathan. I’m an insane Lego nut!

And he’s got a gallery show in November!

The other amazing brick sculptor is Adam Reed Tucker, who builds architectural models out of Lego bricks. (The smaller architecture kits you find at Barnes & Noble were also designed by him.)
