I would call this art piece Empty Your Heart Out... but it is titled "Yellow" by New York Artist Nathan Sawaya, The Brick Artist. His incredible art is not done with paint or bronze but with LEGO building blocks. His works are on tour in North American museums in a show titled, The Art of the Brick. He has one show in Alberta in 2009 and more planned for 2010. There are other LEGO artists such as Andrew Lipson. Legoland California did a seven-city search back in 2007 to find a new master model builder.
My oldest daughter traveled after graduation to Germany where she was most intrigued by the Legoland there. Her pictures were fascinating and I knew of no such thing.
My youngest daughter drew my attention to another interesting LEGO artist this month. Christopher Neimann's approach to LEGO art is featured in his art/article in the NYTimes, Abstract City, I LEGO N.Y.
