Sean Kenney loved creating things as a kid & as an adult would come home from the office & play with his legos. He eventually quit his office job & became one of eleven certified Lego artists in the world.
The pic above from Sean’s site is of a life size green bike he built, along with a traffic jam built by Lego enthusiasts in all black. He got the idea for this piece as he bicycled by New Yorkers that were driving cars & stuck in traffic jams. I love that this piece is one with an eco social commentary.
The pic above (©Reiman Gardens and Sean Kenney) is from his current solo art exhibition at Reiman Gardens of Iowa University. The show is comprised of 27 sculptures out of approximately 500,000 Legos & is up until October 28th of this year.
This takes Legos to a whole other level!!! Sean Kenney is super talented! A great example of making your passion part of your life’s work.
