LEGO Artist Adam Reed Tucker



"Personally, I view the LEGO brick first and foremost as an art medium. No different than, say paint to a painter or metal to a blacksmith. My creations are an artistic celebration, a sculptural exploration of architecture in its grandest most impressive form, the skyscraper. When attempting to interpret these mega-structures using LEGO bricks, one is forced to rely on the raw architectural visual statements the architect had intended. For this very reason, I see my creations as a form of sculpture celebrating the shape, proportions and overall harmony, rather than a literal representation.”
