Top 6 LEGO Art Scenes
Assembled by Gregory Coquelz, this is an awesome recreation of one of my favorite zombie movies, Shaun of the Dead. Coquelz has all of the characters featured outside of the famous bar, the Winchester. Coquelz also has other LEGO movie interpretations on his Flikr stream.
Aaron Savage is an artist from Stratford, England, who has recreated several famous album covers and scenes from music videos with LEGO figurines. The scene featured to the right is from Queen's music video for "Bohemian Rhapsody". Quite the likeness.
Artist, Matt De Lanoy, created this wonderful scene from the Bluth household for Brickworld 2011. The whole gang is featured: Michael, Maeby, Lindsay, Tobias, Gob, Franklin, Buster, Lucille and George Michael. My favorite detail is Tobias: he's in his Blue Man form!
Andrew Lipson and Daneil Shiu came together to form this amazing LEGO form of MC Escher's "Ascending and Descending". This recreation is actually the artists' fourth Escher model. On their website the artists explain that they use a technique in LEGO called SNOT ("studs not on top") which means they had the LEGO studs pointing in different directions besides up.
This LEGO statue appeared on the shores of a beach in Siesta Key Village, Florida. It measures 8 feet long (two feet taller than an average man!), and appears to be the work of artist Ego Leonard. Leonard is also responsible for two other 8 foot LEGO man sculptures that washed up on the shores of beaches in Zandvoort, Holland and Brighton, England.
Another installment in Aaron Savage's LEGO series regarding famous musicians features the quintessential image of John Lennon and Yoko Ono. This is my favorite piece of LEGO art-- it is perfect! The image is so close to the original photograph and is itself its own work of art as well as the actual three dimensional sculpture.
