The 'Masters' LEGO ad series is a clever one that plays off what it means to make LEGO art and likens these kinds of masterpieces to some of the most iconic paintings in the world.
The series by Geometry Global from Hong Kong abstracts works like the Mona Lisa, American Gothic and a self-portrait by van Gogh into posters that look extremely pixelated, because they're made up of the building block toys. The ads are composed as if you're looking at the LEGO paintings from above, so that you see the brand name on each of the differently colored studs that helps the bricks connect to one another. Normally, it'd be obnoxious to see a brand's name repeated over and over, but in this case, it wouldn't work any other way.
