LEGO is one of the most beloved, creativity inspiring toys that any can recall. On this monday, we would like to show you some of the great lego-inspired art that has been created around the world.
Artist, Martin "Megx" Heuwold painted this bridge in Wuppertal, Germany to look like it's made of LEGO bricks.
The bridge itself is part of the Wuppertal Bewegung e.V., an old train line that has been converted to a pedestrian and cycle path.

This is from the talented German artist, Jan Vormann. Vormann visits cities around the globe---including Arnsberg (pictured above), Tel Aviv, St. Petersburg and Amsterdam---to locate cracks and spaces in buildings, statues and street fixtures that could do with some plastic toy filling.
The artwork was produced by a group of Dutch street artists, as part of the Saratosa Chalk Festival in Florida. Artist Leon Keer, who led the project, said he was inspired by the iconic image of the 8,000-strong Chinese terracotta army which was first uncovered in 1974 and is now one of China's biggest tourist attractions.

Keer is also responsible for Ego Leonard’s appearance back in 2007 on Zandvoort beach in the Netherlands.
Keer told a local newspaper that he simply helps out his large fibreglass friend.
“For years I have been close friends with Ego,” he wrote. “Together we made some amazing journeys. He asked me to make his website, as I did.”
Keer told the Herald-Tribune that he worried about the consequences of publicity “for such a person like Ego, who just wants to bring some kindness in the everyday life.”
