This is Lego art.
A thousand tiny Lego pieces put together like pixels to form an image taken from an actual photo of a grandson and his grandfather hailing a cab together in New York City. The grandson, being a Lego master, created this stunning replication of the photograph in...Lego!
The grandfather wanted to frame this incredible birthday gift his grandson made him and we were thrilled to become a part of this project.
We chose a navy blue background on which to float the Lego work. This colour helps define the edges and facilitate the viewer’s ability to form the image.
For the frame, we selected a natural, flat, 1" grey wood moulding that is clean-lined so as to not compete with the art. The grain from the wood provides a layer of warmth.
The different shades of grey from the frame along with the navy blue background pick up the predominant colors and hues throughout the Lego mosaic.
The story behind the piece and the aesthetic of the overall work are a beautiful combo!
