This incredible exhibition features over 100 brick sculptures by Nathan Sawaya, on view from December 20, 2023 to at least July 28, 2024 (ticket sales to date).

LEGOs invade Paris once again! After a stint at Porte de Versailles, then at La Grande Halle de La Villette in a DC superhero version, The Art of the Brick exhibition returns to Paris from December 20, 2023 to July 28, 2024 (minimum ticket sales to date), at Montparnasse, in the former Galeries Lafayette premises. An exhibition featuring the works of artist Nathan Sawaya, produced by Fever, and featuring over 100 astonishing sculptures, the fruit of the American's boundless imagination. This LEGO enthusiast gave up a career as a lawyer in New York to devote himself to his passion: building an entire universe with the little bricks of his childhood...

These LEGO creations also pay tribute to some of history's greatest works, including Rodin's The Thinker, the Venus de Milo, the Mona Lisa (which required over 4,500 pieces for a 1:1 scale result),Hokusai 's Wave, Van Gogh' s Starry Night and Klimt's Kiss.

To make all these pieces, the artist has two workshops, one in New York and the other in Los Angeles: a real LEGO warehouse, where 4 million bricks are arranged in transparent boxes according to color, shape and size. He smiles and confides that he works "in theheart of a LEGO rainbow", and that he is one of the company's best customers.
