There's Only A Little While Left To Catch The Lego DC Comics Exhibition

You've only got until the 13th of June to catch the Art of the Brick: DC Comics at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney. So many have visited the exhibition, more than 100,000 in the past few months, that new sculptures have been added and it has been extended a few weeks.

Art of the Brick is the most successful LEGO art exhibition of all time. Using over a million bricks, it's also the largest collection of DC Comics-inspired LEGO artwork, ever!

Spread over 10 galleries at the Powerhouse, it features over 120 large-scale lego sculptures of all your favourite DC characters -- Super Heroes and Super-Villains drawn from DC Comics' 80 year history. From Batman and Superman, to the Joker and Harley Quinn.

It's the brainchild of famed American sculptor Nathan Sawaya, who has created not only beautiful representations of DC characters, but abstract and thought provoking interpretations on characters, vehicles, environments and themes.

The different galleries explore themes of transformation and reinvention, strength and weakness, and good vs. evil. It will change the way you think of your heroes, as you see Aquaman in the bath with a ducky, Cyborg's battered and broken body, and a full scale batmobile.

The artist himself even makes an appearance in his iconic Yellow sculpture, which is a lego representation of his own origin story.

To celebrate the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a special exhibit has been added - Showdown features the confrontation between Batman and Superman, made of over 30,000 Lego bricks.

The Art of the Brick exhibition runs through to 13th of June, so there are only a few more weeks to catch this wonder before it moves on.

You can grab tickets to the exhibition at the Ticketek, or by turning up at the exhibition before it goes away.
