Who is Nathan Sawaya?
Born in Colville, Washington State, Nathan Sawaya grew up in Veneta, Oregon. A happy, creative child, Nathan loved to draw, write stories, do magic tricks, and of course… remake the world with LEGO® bricks. His law studies when he was a young adult put an end to a life of imagination and creativity and set him on a career as a New York lawyer. But leopards don’t change their spots! After several years of living life at high speed, Nathan Sawaya decided to give up everything and return to his first loves: play, imagination and creativity!
The artist, frustrated for too long, suddenly left the negotiation of contracts behind him and devoted his time to building figures with LEGO bricks, one of his first loves.
Today Nathan Sawaya has more than 4 million colored bricks in his studios in New York and Los Angeles and exhibits his creations worldwide.
