Q&A: Nathan Sawaya

World-renowned LEGO artist Nathan Sawaya makes magnified and life-size objects out of LEGO bricks. His work is now being featured at Discovery Times Square in an exhibition called The Art of the Brick, in New York City through January 5, 2014. The show includes more than 100 sculptures inspired by people, architecture, art, and everyday objects. They are nothing short of amazing!


TFK Kid Reporter Grace Clark visited Discovery Times Square on November 20 to see the unveiling of Sawaya’s newest addition to the exhibit. The artist wanted to make something that paid tribute to New York City. He had a contest where fans could submit ideas for his new piece. The winning idea resulted in a sculpture of the new One World Trade Center that promises to resonate with New Yorkers and visitors from around the world. “I wanted to do something that captured the spirit of New York City, and this was the submission that caught my eye,” he told TFK.
