The Art of the Brick: DC Superheroes

Do you like Superheroes? LEGO®? Justifiable ‘selfie’ opportunities? 

If you answered yes to one or all of the above then you should probably visit The Art of the Brick: DC Superheroes 
exhibition at South Bank's Doon Street Car Park, London. Minutes away from Waterloo Station, the purpose built tent
houses a variety of DC’s finest heroes and villains.
The artworks are created by Nathan Sawaya, an award-winning artist who has meticulously crafted these ingenious
sculptures using only LEGO® bricks.
Sawaya evokes a sense of nostalgia in those familiar with DC Comics as well as a sense of excitement in children 
realising their favourite on-screen heroes. The true quality of the exhibition lies beyond the impressive representation
of the characters and is found in the meaningful substance behind many of the sculptures. 
The artwork explores a variety of themes from the symbiotic relationship between heroes and villains to the psychological 
implications of the origin events of certain characters.
The exhibition features a variety of famous fan favourites including, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and The Flash
just to name a few. If you are nervously anticipating the Justice League movie released later this year then this exhibition
might help satisfy that superhero itch!
