Since his first solo exhibition, Sawaya’s artwork has grabbed the attention of art critics and pop culture novices alike. His artwork has been shown in major art institutions throughout the world, and held in the collection of both prominent private and public collections. Sawaya was the first contemporary artist to ever take LEGO into the art world as a medium. His work is obsessively and painstakingly crafted and is both beautiful and playful. Sawaya’s ability to transform LEGO bricks into something new, his devotion to scale and color perfection, the way he conceptualizes the action of the subject matter, enables him to elevate an ordinary toy to the status of fine art.

Xmas wish: We want the LEGO Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Kit

Posted from The Citrus Report

For that guy who always wanted one but can’t now ever afford the real one, you can get yourself involved in a 1:17 scale model of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. And it will only cost you $59.99.

LEGO describes it as an “amazingly detailed 1:17 scale LEGO® model with opening doors and engine cover. It’s authentic right down to the engine and the famous Lamborghini rims! Includes instructions for rebuilding into a coupe Gallardo or spyder Gallardo with retractable top.”

Thanks to Highsnobiety for the head’s up.
