LEGO as an art medium has no limits, none. It can be blocky and colorful, contoured and realistic or clean and stark. These stags by Grantmasters could hang in any pub, huntsman club or study and I'm guessing most people wouldn't even notice they're brick-built, at least not at first. They're elegant and regal, like the beasts they convey.
I wish I listened to more Foo Fighters, I could probably make some more witty references (or at least bad puns) about this stunning silhousaic by Grantmasters. It's not that I have anything against them, I'm sure there's some songs I know, I just couldn't name them off the top of my head. I invite you to look at this from a distance, and then get in close, it can be totally appreciated from either and I love that.
Builder Grantmasters shows us how you really can't go wrong when you combine Banksy, LEGO and silhousaic art. This interpretation of 'girl with balloons' (not it's official title, Banksy isn't much on titling his work) would look right at home in any art museum. Or on the wall of my studio for that matter.
There's been a long time and somewhat baffling fascination with combining the photography of cars with women. I sort of understand it at a "primal man level" (lowers brow, grunts, shiny car, pretty girl). But in the end the practice does neither subject justice if for no other reason than size discrepancy. Back far enough to see the car, can't see the girl, and vice versa. None of this applies to brick-built silhousaics though, like this latest masterpiece by Bricks Noir.
Builder Bricks Noir is back with another gorgeous silhousaic. This time it's 1940's sex symbol Rita Hayworth. The contouring, construction and color selections on this piece are perfect and seemingly effortless. It's complex construction that's simple to look at, and as classy as the lady it's portraying.
