“There was nothing wrong with me being a lawyer, but I always knew there was another me, an Artist Me, lurking inside”
This lego creation of a red man climbing out of a grey man has been wowing visitors to the Old Truman Brewery, a gallery in east London.
Entitled ‘Self’, it is by a former lawyer at global law firm Winston & Strawn, Nathan Sawaya, who quit the law in 2004 to become a very successful lego artist.
The caption beneath it reads:
“Taking a leap is hard. I used to be a lawyer. There was nothing wrong with me being a lawyer, but I always knew there was another me, an Artist Me, lurking inside. Then one day I decided to let the Artist Me out, and I never looked back.”
Sawaya (pictured below) is exhibiting in London until Sunday before continuing his ‘Art of the Brick’ world tour.
