Jeff Friesen’s newest brick photography series reimagines famous Banksy pieces as LEGO street art. Previously, the award-winning photographer has used the iconic brick toys to make the 50 States of LEGO and the Great LEGO North. Bricksy: LEGO Banksy is not just a recreation of some of graffiti artist’s most well-known work. Friesen adds a humorous twist the the series as well.

An example of this is ‘Bouquet Thrower’ where the man is throwing flowers across rooftops to his girlfriend, who is a police officer. Or in ‘Photo Opportunity,’ a mime balancing act and a cowgirl photographer are added to the shot. This LEGO street art, while funny, also shows the Canadian photographer’s artistic talents.
