Building Amazing Creations: Sean Kenney’s Art with LEGO Bricks
If someone was to ask me my favorite form of art, I’d immediately reply, “LEGO sculpture.” LEGO bricks have joined the ranks of other crucial implements of art, like oils, pastels, clay, and more. They’re infinitely adaptable and easily acquired. This is art for the masses.
Building Amazing Creations collects dozens of photographs of LEGO creations by artist Sean Kenney and his crew. Everything from larger-than-life animals to skyscraper models to corporate logos come to three-dimensional fruition thanks to the mad skills and impressive creativity of Kenney and his team. (The model of Times Square is amazing, especially the LEGO versions of iconic posters for Les Mis and The Lion King.)
But this is more than just a mind-blowing art book, it’s also inspiration incarnate. Kenney asks questions about his works, encouraging readers to discover the unique uses he’s found for traditional LEGO pieces, encouraging them to keep creating new, weird, and wonderful works of their own.
Complete with behind-the-scenes looks at his workplace, his techniques, and some of his most famous works, this collection will amaze the LEGO fan in all of us, no matter what age we are.
