We are huge LEGO fans in this house, so when we heard about The Art Of Brick in San Francisco we knew we had to visit.  It is the world's most popular display of LEGO art! Get ready to discover over one million LEGO bricks transformed into more than 70 sculptures by artist Nathan Sawaya. This critically acclaimed collection includes Sawaya's original sculptures, as well as re-imagined versions of some of the world’s most famous art masterpieces, such as Michelangelo’s David, Van Gogh’s Starry Night and Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.  This exhibit was amazing and we had the best time.

His global touring exhibition, The Art Of The Brick, feature large-scale sculptures using only toy building blocks: LEGO bricks to be exact.

Nathan Sawaya has earned a top position in the world of contemporary art and has created a new dimension by merging Pop Art and Surrealism in awe inspiring and ground breaking ways.
