04 May 2013 -The art of the brick exhibition- Nathan Sawaya

On last Saturday, We headed over to the Art  Science of Museum beside Marina Bay Sand for the "the art of the brick " exhibition.I am always amazed of how LEGO can be converted to arts and when I saw that there's such exhibition last year, I am yearned and looking forward to it. As Jyn was still very young last year, I decided to catch this somewhere this year. After knowing that this exhibit is going be extended till end of this month, I am not going to waste any more time and decided to bring Jyn and my mum for this fantastic exhibition.

It was drizzling when we reached there. Not much crowd actually. I guess because this exhibition is going to end prettty soon, maybe that was the reason .

Take note that for Singapore citizen, the ticket will be SGD13 for adult and senior citizen SGD12. Child is $8 and below 2 is free.Wow, this exhibit is highly recommended by CNN :) . There are total of 52 of Nathan's Sawaya 's work which he brought specially here.

It wasn't a big area and the space was divided according to different themes I guess.Before you enter the artist's studio you will briefed by the exhibition attendants of what are the things are allowed inside the hall.Take note that though you can took photograph of the art works, but flash light was not allowed. The only reason I could think of is not to disturb others while appreciating the works.

Some of the works are done by Nathan years back and we were lucky that we need not travel far to USA yet still able to watch his signature pieces  :)

Most of his works are human statues which reflected on his views on human lives and philosophy.And this really had done a great amount of impact during his creation of arts.A famous quote,a picture can speak a millions words and this is certainly true in Nathan Sawaya works.

Amost 90% of his works only work in 1 tone color and what can I say, arts means simple and less is more .

I couldn't agree more. Imagaination is everywhere around us and what we need is to look deeper and we can create anything out of simplicity which looks beyond of what may concur.

My little enginner @ work. Generating ideas , drafting on plan and testing and ...... final product ( with mummy's help of course :)

This is one of kids' favourite. Thanks to nathan whose creativity is far way beyond of any of us can imagine.This is make up of 80,000 pieces of lego blocks.

This is consider as Nathan's most simple art works which is call the "finger maze".
Did anyone of you think that lego can create mazes?I guess kids will be facinated by this 4 pieces of mixed colour mazes.

Anyone guess what this is ? Hint : This can be found on the floor...
It's ...............reflexology time !
Yes Nathan, you are right.We can create ANYTHING out of lego.

  Lego "portrait painting " .This is awesome.

There are of course many more of Nathan Sawaya's work other then I posted here.Do pay a visit if you can till 26 May 2013.
