Jonathan Lopes is a renowned artist who works within the medium of LEGO bricks. He focuses on a variety of genres including urban landscapes, conceptual art, and life-sized sculptures and is well known for his realistic and gritty urban scenes. Lopes’ work has been likened to the Ashcan School artistic movement. His debut work, NEW YORK CITY BRICK BY BRICK, is an exploration of the architecture and history of New York City through the medium of LEGO® bricks, highlighting iconic structures such as the Flatiron Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, Grand Central Terminal, brownstones, fire houses, and more, unlocking techniques that can help builders of all ages (Abrams Image, May 2019). Jonathan also has an exhibit of his work visiting cities through-out the United States and he gives presentations on his creative process within this unique artistic medium at each venue.
