Q: What do you get when you cross a lawyer and an artist?
A: Nathan Sawaya: Brick Artist!
Nathan was a Wall Street lawyer who gave up his practice to play with Lego blocks! Seriously. And he even makes a living at it! Listen to an interesting interview with him on APM’s The Story (the first story is good also, but Nathan’s story is during the last 20 minutes or so.)
Some of Nathan’s work has become so iconic that if you image-search “sculpture” in Google his work “yellow” comes up on the first page.
