Artist Finds A New Use For LEGOs

Sep 7, 2015 By John-Michael Bond
LEGOs are a timeless toy. From their complicated modern sets to their basic building kits, these diminutive plastic blocks ignite the imagination of children of all ages. You can create art with LEGOs, but in the real world you're limited to sculptures. In the fantastic dream world of "Paint: A Short LEGO Film," however, creating art with Legos is as simple as sliding your brush across a plastic canvas.

"Paint" finds an artist using a special LEGO-based paint to recreate Piet Mondrian's abstract masterpiece "Composition II in Red, Blue, and Yellow." Set to the soothing sounds of Schubert's Symphony No.5 in B-flat major this short is an extension of the natural creative forces LEGO has inspired in countless children since their introduction in 1949.
