About Nathan Sawaya
Nathan Sawaya is an acclaimed contemporary artist who creates awe-inspiring artwork out of nsob a toy. His art focuses on large-scale sculptures using only LEGO bricks. Sawaya was the first artist to ever take LEGO into the art world and his touring exhibition THE ART OF THE BRICK, has entertained and inspired millions of art lovers and enthusiasts around the world. CNN heralded, “The Art of the Brick is one of the top must-see exhibits in the world!” Originally from Oregon, when it came time for college, Sawaya moved to New York City, attended NYU and became a lawyer. But after years of million dollar mergers and corporate acquisitions on Park Avenue, Sawaya realized he would rather be sitting on the floor creating art than sitting in a boardroom negotiating contracts. He walked away from the law and took an artistic risk on LEGO bricks. Now, Sawaya is an author, speaker, and one of the most popular, award-winning contemporary artists of our time.
