Surely if you are a Lego fan then you will have heard of this guy? If not then why not? Nathan Sawaya is a genius. No less.
Aside from the fact that he might be a little crazy as he quit his high paying job as a lawyer to essentially play around with Lego, his talent cannot be denied. Indeed we probably all dream that we could conjure up some of the fantastic pieces of art that Sawaya creates. From the a replica of the flag raising at Iwo Jima to a hundred dollar bill he produces designs that even those with little or no interest in Lego can appreciate for being…well, masterful.
His art has to be seen to be appreciated. To be honest there is little that you can say that would truly give you an idea of how amazing this stuff is. It is a guy following his dream. And follow it he does.
