If you give an artist Legos…

They will probably come up with some pretty cool artwork. At least that’s what artist Nathan Sawaya did when he created pieces of art entirely out of Legos. Not only has he created sculptures but he’s also made “paintings” as well. Although it may not seem like a big deal these pieces are actually pretty complex. Not only does he have to take the time to make sure they come out the right shape but color is another factor in making look as good as they do. Below are some of my favorites but I’ll also have a link to the others below. I know this is a short post but I think these pieces speak for themselves and I don’t see why I should bore you by talking about Legos in two paragraphs :). There is also a time-lapse video at the end of the slide show in the link! I hope you guys find these as cool as I did and I’ll see you guys next time!

Tsitoghdyzan with his painting “Mirror”

Hey everyone! I recently found a really amazing painter that I wanted to write about and share with you guys. When it comes to painting I have gained a new found appreciation for painters so this guy kind of blew my mind. I had a painting class this past semester and it took me the majority of the semester to get my one Georgia O’Keeffe painting done.It was definitely a struggle for me but I’ll talk about that in another post. What I’m getting at is that painting can be really hard, especially if you are trying to paint something realistically. It really has made me realize and appreciate how hard they work to create these amazing paintings.

The paintings Tigran Tsitoghdzyan create look more like photographs rather than paintings. When I first saw them I thought ‘Wow, those photos are beautiful’. Imagine my shock when I found out they were paintings. My favorite by far is “Mirror”, something about it really appeals to me. Maybe its the soft expression of the face or the hair but something keeps me coming back to this one. The details and texture within this painting is amazing, its just so well done. I thought these were so beautiful and I wanted to share them! I hope you guys enjoyed this post, I’ll include a link to more pictures down below!
