Sawaya’s LEGO Life Reflections 1: Know what you’re about

I consider myself lucky to have had the chance to experience Nathan Sawaya’s “THE ART OF THE BRICK” exhibtion at the ARTSCIENCE MUSEUM  here in Singapore. A New York attorney- turned full-time LEGO artist- turned professional exhibiting artist, Sawaya sculpts his life experiences and reflections using brick as a medium.
This week as we start the New Year 2013, I bring you life reflections inspired by Nathan Sawaya’s art. They might as well be my New Year’s Resolutions (& yours too).

My reflection: “Dare to open yourself up 
& see what you’re really made of!”
The Art of the Brick by Nathan Sawaya
Nathan’s Reflection:
“When we’re born, we’re all given a shell to live in.
And one of the joys of living is being able to fill it 
in any way we like.”
“MASK” (2007)
The Art of the Brick by Nathan Sawaya
Nathan’s Reflection:
“Masks are used by just about every culture on the planet.
They keep things hidden and show only the face we want others to see. I built MASK as a reflection of revealing our true selves.
So often we put on a different face 
and then can no longer identify our own self. 
Mask identifies the facade we hide behind.”
