Dose # 57: PENCILS 3- Sawaya’s Lego Pencil

Today, a giant pencil with an even bigger message…

Dose # 55-61- PENCILS

Dose #57:
PENCILS 3- LEGO Pencil by lawyer-turned-brick artist – Nathan Sawaya

The Idea: artist uses bricks to create a sculpture and make a statement about writers/creative folks; Sawaya used 3,210 bricks to make this piece

Spotted at: Art of the Brick exhibition, Art-Science Museum, Singapore

Possibilities: how about a mini version of this as a pendant or keychain with the quote by Nathan Sawaya.


This sculpture is called “WRITER”. Nathan Sawaya says: “Let your big ideas flow. When you let your creativity loose, be it in writing, art, music or whatever, your ideas take on a life of their own. So take those big ideas and set them free.”

And here’s more from master brick artist Nathan Sawaya: “I carry a little sketchpad with me wherever I go. I’m forever jotting down ideas. Many of my works center on the phenomena of how everyday life, people and raw emotion are intertwined. I am inspired by my own experiences, the journeys I take, and the people I meet.”
