Talented artist and mastermind Toshiya Masuda offers an unusual perspective to everyday objects in his series of work that recreates everyday objects using LEGO pieces. The three dimensional works of art capture the realism in the articles of items such as alcohol, food and take away packaging using modular blocks that give a distorted sense of perspective to the viewer.

Masuda's harnesses the building possibilities of LEGO by expanding their use from toy playthings to the realm of art. He duplicates the aesthetic of foods such as fried eggs, bottles of elegant Moet champagne and Starbucks coffee cups using ceramic replica pieces of the building blocks. Each piece has a distinct 8-bit aesthetic to it, as if the food product belongs in a video game.
