PARIS, May 4 — In the latest stop on a world tour, American artist Nathan Sawaya’s Lego sculptures will go on display at the Paris Expo Gallery from May 14.

“The Art of the Brick” features over 100 of Sawaya’s remarkable sculptures, made from a total of over 1 million Lego bricks.

Among the works on display, several are inspired by famous artistic masterpieces such as the Venus de Milo, Rodin’s “The Thinker” and Edvard Munch’s “The Scream.” Another is a 20-foot-long model of a T-rex skeleton, made with no less than 80,020 bricks.

Other sculptures are pure products of the artist imagination. “Swimmer” is a female figure that appears to have been frozen in the middle of a freestyle stroke, half-submerged. “Yellow” is a man who opens his chest to release an outpouring of Lego bricks.

First mounted in New York in 2007, the exhibition has attracted over 2 million visitors worldwide so far. The show was presented in several cities across Australia, Asia and Europe in 2014.

“The Art of the Brick” by Nathan Sawaya goes on display at the Paris Expo Gallery from May 14 to August 30.
