PBS documentary on LEGO artists

In their latest episode the PBS series, Off Book features LEGO art and 3 very different brick artists who are using LEGO bricks as a medium to express their art.  Their names should be familiar to you: Sean Kenney, Alex Kobbs, and Nathan Sawaya. Enjoy the short clip. 🙂

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. In this episode, we talk 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.

Featuring:
Sean Kenney
Alex Kobbs
Nathan Sawaya
