Ochre Jelly, the one-time blogger of The Living Brick, knows how to immortalize pop culture moments in a truly unforgettable way. He creates sculptural portraits of iconic celebrities and characters out of LEGO pieces. In fact, Ochre Jelly is the one who recently made waves on the Internet with his LEGO Selfie, which recreated the playful Oscar stunt. Yet his portfolio goes beyond that to encompass Miley Cyrus on her wrecking ball, Jean Claude Van Damme between two trucks and Sheldon on his beloved leather couch.

Based in Seattle, Washington, Ochre Jelly creates works that would be coveted by many. Playful in more than one way, it shows just how versatile this toy is. Stats for Pop Culture LEGO Portraits Trending: Older & Buzzing
