On November 19, the Ogilvy PR team for the Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences attended the worldwide premiere of The Art of the Brick: DC Comics. The exhibition, which is the largest collection of DC Comics-inspired LEGO artwork in the world, was opened by The Hon. Troy Grant, MP, NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for the Arts and the Museum’s Director, Rose Hiscock.

Featuring more than 120 LEGO sculptures created by legendary LEGO® artist Nathan Sawaya, the exhibition uses hundreds of thousands of bricks to create large-scale sculptures of the most enduring Super Heroes and Super-Villains: from Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, to The Joker and Harley Quinn.

The centrepiece of the work is the world’s largest LEGO Batmobile, which is made from half a million LEGO bricks and measures almost 5.5 metres in length. Saway collaborated with acclaimed artist and DC Entertainment Co-publisher, Jim Lee, for the design.

Through a series of galleries, The Art of the Brick: DC Comics showcase Sawaya’s interpretations of characters, vehicles, environments and themes found throughout the DC Comics mythology including transformation and reinvention, strength and weakness, as well as good vs. evil.

The Art of the Brick: DC Comics is a collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment, and opens 21 November for a limited season.
