Tickets are now on sale for the limited season of exhibition The Art of the Brick – over 75 artworks created by US artist Nathan Sawaya, using more than a million Lego bricks – at London’s Old Truman Brewery this autumn.

Running from 26 September 2014 until 4 January 2015, visitors to the exhibition at east London’s Old Truman Brewery will see large-scale Lego sculptures, many of which are human figures such as Sawaya’s most famous piece Yellow, and also includes a Tyrannosaurus Rex dinosaur skeleton, constructed from over 80,000 Lego bricks that measures over six metres in length.

In addition, visitors will have a chance to see Sawaya’s recent interpretations of some of the world’s most famous artworks, such as Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo and Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring. The exhibition has already seen worldwide recognition, following success in New York, Shanghai and Melbourne.

The exhibition includes an Interactive Zone inviting visitors to explore their creativity using the iconic bricks.
