PREVIEW: The Art of the Brick DC Super Heroes, Southbank

Artist Nathan Sawaya will return to London in March with the world’s biggest Lego exhibition inspired by Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. 

Coming to London following a successful run in Madrid, this contemporary art exhibition will be based in a specially built space on the South Bank for all those who love Lego and of course DC super heroes.

Created in collaboration with  Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, Nathan Sawaya has created a large collection of artwork inspired by  DC’s Justice League, including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, alongside DC Super-Villains the Joker, Harley Quinn and more.

The exhibition will showcase the artist’s interpretations of  characters, vehicles, environments and themes found throughout DC Super Heroes mythology including transformation and reinvention, strength and weakness, as well as good vs. evil.

The Art of the Brick will feature more than 120 original pieces by the artist, created exclusively from Lego bricks. Pieces on display will include a life size Batmobile, measuring at 5.5 metres.

Talking about his artwork  Sawaya said: “Just like Superman, we all have our own story. This art collection is based on the elements of the journey of a super hero, including the moment in which we are all called to the adventure.”

The Art of the Brick: DC Super Heroes will be on display along the Southbank from the 1st March. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://www.aotbdc.co.uk/
