This is a Starry Night Lego Stained Glass Window, created by Smock Man. Based on the famous painting by Vincent van Gogh. The Stained Glass effect is achieved by sandwiching a bunch of transparent pieces between two layers of clear panels. There is a one stud gap between the clear panels to work with. The impressionistic style of the painting lends itself well to be recreated in all sorts of different mediums. This creation can be a little fragile. Most of the pieces are not connected to anything. A good shake would probably move stuff around. The city part of the build is the only part (besides the frame) that is not transparent. This make it feel more solid than any other part of the scene. Everything else is pretty much all transparent Lego cheese slopes. With a few 1×1 round bricks representing stars. The main feature of this build is how it glows in different lighting. It is ironic that Starry Night would look best during the sunny day.
Lego is surprisingly well suited for designing modern furniture and architecture. The geometric and blocky designs match up with Lego bricks. Especially if you use SNOT techniques. With no studs, a Lego build can look photorealistic. This mid-century modern desk is the creation of Heikki M who has built a lot of modern designs. In this build the contrast between the white, brown, and black details really makes it stand out. The added modern artwork on top of the desk is built with a few colorful 1×2 Lego Grills. You can also find a gold plate being used as the base of the table lamp. The white wall and white floor is a simple background, but the added baseboard is a great touch.
“Rainbow for Children” is a Lego creation by 0937 Superfan. The rainbow painting is a great Lego MOC. Especially the effect used for creating a wrinkled piece of paper. The white plates broken up and angled at various spots works well. The paper looks like it is mostly two layers of Lego, with maybe a few sections of only one layer. This allows the rainbow painting to be on the same level as the paper. The paint brushes and pencil are also Lego creations. The brush tips are all different. The yellow is using a banana piece, blue is a Minifigure helmet feather piece, and the red is a snake. The tops of the paint brushes use soda can 1×1 prints, and a padlock 1×1 print. This rainbow is part of the Lego challenge, #LetsBuildTogether, in which the goal is to create and share rainbows. For this challenge, Lego will donate 500,000 sets to children in need.
Draganpopart has revealed a couple awesome Lego collage art pieces. The classic Lego spaceman is 20″ x 16″ on canvas. Using various mediums; such as watercolors, acrylics, and vintage book prints. There is also the iconic space console, which is painted on a 14″ canvas using the same methods and materials as the spaceman. The detail achieved on these art pieces is great and would look great hanging from any Lego fans wall.
American Gothic is one of the most iconic paintings of the 20th century. It has been recreated and reimagined in almost every way imaginable. Cole Edmonson has created a huge Lego mosaic of the painting. It measures in at 36.25″ x 30″ which makes it a little larger then the original painting. It’s always good to see a Lego mosaic in actual bricks rather then computer rendered.
