Lego exhibition’s in a League of its own
Exhibition inspired by comic book characters
ThE countdown is on to the arrival of the world’s largest lego exhibition inspired by Justice league superheroes and villains.
Artist Nathan Sawaya will soon be on his way to the capital to debut more than two millions pieces of Lego and 120 works of art capturing the likes of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman.
The Art of the Brick: DC Super Heroes will take stage on London’s South Bank on March 1.
Together with Warner Bros and DC Entertainment, through a series of immersive galleries, characters and vehicles, the good versus evil exhibit will include a number of showstoppers.
Visitors will embark on a 80-year historical journey through the collection of artworks, including a life-size Batmobile, built from half a million pieces, an incredible Batman and Superman as well as The Joker and Harley Quinn.
Mr Sawaya said: “Just like Superman, we all have our own story. This art collection is based on the elements of the journey of a superhero, including the moment in which we are all called to the adventure.”
Peter van Roden, senior vice president of global themed entertainment at Warner Bros Consumer Products, said: “We are incredibly excited to continue our partnership with Nathan on this unique and fascinating global touring exhibition, which combines DC icons with Lego in an immersive entertainment experience.
