Growing up, I remember our house full of legos. There was a big plastic container of legos that my brothers would play with for hours, constructing different things and letting their imaginations go. I remember stepping on random lego pieces on the floor and the yellow helmut head the lego figures had. I never imagined that legos could be constructed into huge lifelike sculptures like the ones I saw on Friday.
I had a chance to visit the Art Science Museum by the Marina Bay Sands hotel for the first time. They had two special exhibits, one was a mummies exhibit and the other was an exhibit by Nathan Sawaya called the Art of the Brick. I really enjoyed seeing how Nathan Sawaya used lego blocks for his art. I was really blown away by his creativity and talent.There was this one quote on the wall from him, where he realized that he had more fun sitting on a floor building sculptures than sitting in a boardroom negotiating contracts as a lawyer. I’m glad he chose to pursue what he was passionate about!Unfortunately, today is the last day of his exhibit here in Singapore.
