Nathan Sawaya: Lawyer's Love of LEGO® Blocks Leads to a Life Outside Law Practice

We previously blogged about Nathan Sawaya in December 2006. Sawaya left his job as a practicing lawyer to become a sculptor.  What makes Sawaya's sculptures so unique is his choce of material: LEGO blocks. 

In this update, we're happy to report that Sawaya's fame is spreading. The innovative lawyer-artist recently appeared on ABC television's Good Morning America program to tell how what started as an after-work hobby bloomed into a full-time career. (Link to video is here.)  Like many children around the world, Sawaya had played with LEGO bricks when he was a boy.  In his Good Morning America interview, he explained how he now takes those toy bricks and transforms them into works of fine art.

Nathan Sawaya's LEGO sculptures regularly appear in exhibits at major art museums, and ABC News has published an online photo gallery of some of his work.  Check it out (and show your kids). The "brick artist" himself provides more information about his work at his Web site.  Congratulations, Mr. Sawaya, on your successful and apparently fun career change.
