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!

Underwater Sculpture!

Hi Everyone,

I know that this is really late in the week! I felt terrible all this week but I’m finally getting better so I decided to do a quick post or two on this blog. I was looking around on Pinterest, again, and I came across a really unique artist. His name is Jason deCaires Taylor and he creates unique underwater scenes with his sculptures. I went to his website and his work is really amazing. What he does is create different sculptures of human figures and uses natural underwater locations to place them in. His work is so unique and incredible that his first underwater sculpture park has been included in the top 25 Wonders of the World. What I really like about his work is the way he able to incorporate these man-made objects into a natural setting. From the photos it looks as if some of these sculptures are meant to be there or were created by an ancient culture long ago. They also have a kind of creepy and haunting feel to them which is something I think works well. Just seeing these statues also reminded me of Stonehenge or the Easter Island heads. According to his website these are permanent so its interesting to think what future generation will think of these the same way we wonder about places like Stonehenge. If you want to see more of his work you can go to www.underwatersculpture.com . I highly recommend you do because he work is so interesting and unlike anything I’ve seen before. See you next time!
