Creating Art With LEGO Blocks
LEGO blocks are one of the most beloved toys in the world, playing a role in many a person's childhood. But for some creators, LEGO has evolved from toy to art form.
This episode of OFF BOOK talks to three LEGO artists who have made beautiful mosaics, amazing stop-motion videos, thoughtful sculptures, and have turned these tiny building blocks into a true artistic medium.
Artist featured: Sean Kenney, Alex Kobbs, Nathan Sawaya
