LEGO artist Nathan Sawaya and DC Entertainment have revealed an 18-foot long LEGO Batmobile sculpture. The Batmobile will be part of the upcoming The Art of Brick: DC Comics art exhibit at Sydney, Australia’s Powerhouse Museum in November.
Sawaya told Entertainment Weekly about his latest creation “This is a dream project. This is the Batmobile! What other vehicle is so iconic?”
“For the Batmobile in particular, I collaborated with [DC co-publisher] Jim Lee, who was so gracious to actually draw live at a panel at Comic Con for a design of a new Batmobile while we were taking suggestions from the audience,” Sawaya explains. “So as that was how this all started. I used his drawing as a bit of a blueprint to come up with the actual Lego structure and then created this Batmobile brick by brick.”
The Batmobile is just one of several DC Comics LEGO sculptures that will debut at the exhibit. Sawaya is renowned for his Lego sculptures. He has created the likes of a Lego Mona Lisa and T-Rex.
