Amazing LEGO Creations Inspired By Classical Art Pieces

LEGO blocks are not only a great toy and an inspirational building material, they are an art medium. LEGO artists have recreated artistic masterpieces with LEGO pieces in many different styles, using three basic methods. The subject of the work can be built in 3D with LEGO blocks, as in Nathan Sawaya's version of Grant Wood's American Gothic shown above. Or different colored LEGO blocks can be used as pixels, as in Marco Sodano's rendition of Van Gogh's Self-Portrait (see the rest of his series here). 

The third method is to use customized minifigs as the subjects of an artwork, as in Ki Young Lee's recreation of Leonardo Da Vinci's The Last Supper.  

Some creative people can combine all those methods as needed. Bored Panda has a gallery of 38 famlous masterpieces recreated in LEGO art.
