Lego Banksy

Award-winning photographer Jeff Friesen has made quite a name for himself in his “other line of work” by using different combinations of Lego bricks and minifigures to create entirely new outcomes.

What started out as simply afternoon playtime with his daughter has evolved into The Brick Fantastic.

One particular project of his that caught my eye was his work as “Bricksy“, a Lego interpretation of the infamous artist Banksy.

In researching the images used here it had never occurred to me that as big a fan of Banksy’s work as I am, I didn’t know the proper titles of many of his works.

Seeing them written below the work makes them all the more poignant and profound particularly when you consider what the likes of “Choose Your Weapon” and “Foreclosure” really represent.

Who Is Banksy?

We’ll probably never know the real answer to this question, but that hasn’t stopped Aardman Animations having a cheeky little guess.

Enjoy.  And keep smiling, it’ll be Friday in the morning.
