LEGO art & LEGO artists – featured video

in Featured LEGO Fans

Today I thought to share with you an inspiring video featuring three prominent LEGO artists. LEGO is one of the most beloved toys in the world, playing a role in many a person’s childhood. But for some creative people, LEGO has evolved from toy to art-form.

In this video PBS Digital Studios features three LEGO artists who have made beautiful LEGO mosaics, amazing LEGO stop-motion videos, thoughtful LEGO sculptures, and have turned these tiny building-blocks into a true medium of art. Check it out below! 🙂

Isn’t that great? The three LEGO artists featured in the video are:

  • Sean Kenney – Polar Bears, Portraits, Penguins, LEGO!
  • Alex Kobbs – OMG Stop-Motion LEGO!!!
  • Nathan Savaya – Exploring Humanity with LEGO

I have shared with you before one of Alex Kobbs’ LEGO art (see here: LEGO stop-motion video: Gears of War) and I’m planning to write about the other featured LEGO artists in the future as well. In the meantime you can search for them online to see more of their inspiring work.

So what do you think? Which of the LEGO artists inspire you the most? Have you tried any of these LEGO art-forms yourself; LEGO mosaic building, LEGO sculpting, or LEGO stop-motion? Share your thoughts in the comment section below! 😉

I like all three artist’s, because they all have diffrent styles. LEGO has grown so fast. It still blows my mind on what you can do with LEGO. The sky is no longer the limit.

Oh, they meant that kind of sculpting. I thought they meant custom parts sculpting.
