Anyone with an ounce of ounce about them will know what this is. Or what it’s trying to be. Or what anyone under the age of ten will think is better.
Why, it’s that Nighthawks picture, that is, by that nice Edward Hopper. Only there’s a funny corrugated effect going on. And the ladies and lady gentlemen have yellow faces. And Lego hair.
*threepenny bit drops*
F-why, ’tis a Lego version of that classic painting by Edward Hopper, Nighthawks. To be more precise, it’s artist Marco Pece’s re-imagining of Nighthawks, using Lego.
To make matters better, Marco has done nine other versions of art classics, including the Mona Lisa, Magritte’s Golconda, Warhol’s Marilyn print, even da Vinci’s Last Supper, Lego-stylee.
Ooh, here’s an idea. Let’s do a compare ‘n’ contrast, after the break sponsored by Lego…Nighthawks, Edward Hopper Golconda, René Magritte Mona Lisa, Leonardo da Vinci American Gothic, Grant Wood Pearl Earring, Jan Vermeer Last Supper, Leonardo da Vinci Marriage of the Virgin, Raphael Marilyn, Andy Warhol Automat, Edward Hopper Arnolfini, Jan Van Eyck
E r, do a wee research jobbie on Marco Pece…
ps. Love a Lego.
Hmmm, rings a bell...,
