The Art of Brick | Nathan Sawaya
Nathan Sawaya, a New York-based artist, is reliving his childhood everyday.Before working as an independent artist, Nathan was a lawyer, but the satisfaction he receives from creating is nowhere to be found in a lawyer’s office cubicle. As a child, he drew cartoons, wrote stories, perfected magic tricks, and of course, played with LEGO. But after attending NYU and being a lawyer, he rediscovered the LEGO.
When I was a lawyer I quickly came to realize I was more comfortable sitting on the floor creating sculptures than I was sitting in a boardroom negotiating contracts. My own personal conflicts and fears, coupled with a deep desire for overall happiness, paved the way to becoming a full-time working artist.
