Famous LEGO Portrait Recreations

These LEGO Masterpieces Honor the Great Painters

— December 10, 2013 — Life-Stages
Classic famous paintings are getting a unique makeover thanks to one artist who is recreating famous art to create LEGO portrait collection.

Artist Marco Sodano is using LEGO bricks to recreate well-known and much-lauded artworks like The Mona Lisa and The Girl With the Pearl Earring. The tagline in Sodao’s Behnace page says, “All the children are authentic artists.” This association of childhood with creativity is an excellent summation of just what LEGO does: gives children an outlet to create whatever comes into their head, the same way these famous artists created what was in their heads with paint, a canvas, and a model.

The LEGO portrait collection makes for a creative series and the results are visually interesting, with the portraits looking almost pixelated. These portraits make bold and interesting statements about great art and where creativity comes from.
Trend Themes
1. LEGO Art - There is a trend of using LEGO bricks to create unique and visually interesting artwork.
2. Pixelated Portraits - The use of LEGO bricks to recreate famous artworks results in portraits that have a pixelated aesthetic.
3. Childhood Creativity - The association of LEGO with childhood creativity emphasizes the importance of giving children outlets for artistic expression.
Industry Implications
1. Art Supplies - There is a potential disruptive innovation opportunity for art supplies companies to explore new materials and mediums for artists, such as LEGO bricks.
2. Education - The use of LEGO as a tool for creative expression suggests an opportunity for the education industry to incorporate LEGO-based art activities into curriculum to foster creativity and innovation.
3. Toy Manufacturing - The trend of using LEGO for artistic purposes opens up an innovative opportunity for toy manufacturers to design and market LEGO sets specifically for artistic endeavors.
