In another interesting series of LEGO designs by Marco Sodano, famous portraits are turned into abstract pixel art. The LEGO – Masters collection, featuring Van Gogh and Mona Lisa, is a followup to a wildly popular LEGO advertising campaign by Sodano, also on Behance, with a similar concept “All the children are authentic artists with LEGO.”
When I was a kid, I used to love creating things with LEGOs and I really like how it’s become quite the art form now beyond just an imaginative children’s toy. Sodano looks to bring us back to our childhood year’s in this exhibit as we once again test our imagination and natural facial recognition capabilities to quickly reconstruct these classic paintings in our heads just from looking at these basic pixel representations.
Could you recognize all the classic paintings?
