If you are a LEGO fan, chances are you've seen the incredible LEGO art of Nathan Sawaya. And if you live in New York City, there's an even bigger chance you've seen his latest work, the 'Hugman.'

Sawaya, known as the 'Brick Artist,' has created a unique LEGO art sculpture -- the 'Hugman' -- which he has placed around various parts of the Big Apple, like graffiti, hugging random things like door handles, fences and bike racks. According to Chip Chick, Sawaya even geotagged each Hugman so they can be located on Google Maps.
