Artist Nathan Sawaya has created over 120 artworks for the exhibition

The largest LEGO exhibition in the world has opened in London. The Art of the Brick: DC Super Heroes uses over two million LEGO bricks to create 120 works of art, all themed around characters and scenes from the pages of DC Comics.

The 120 works of art include an eighteen ft Batmobile, multi-coloured Batman helmets, Superman looking at himself in the mirror, and different-sized sculptures of the Flash, the Green Lantern, Aquaman, Catwoman and Wonderwoman. You’ll also see DC super villains the Joker and Harley Quinn

All of the pieces were created by artist Nathan Sawaya, whose works are large-scale sculptures constructed from LEGO bricks. This exhibition follows the success of his 2014 London show, and explores the themes of transformation and reinvention, strength and weakness, and good versus evil through the vault of 80 years of DC Comics’ superheroes and villains.

You’ll find The Art of the Brick: DC Super Heroes behind the National Theatre and the BFI. The show runs until September 2017. Tickets cost £16.50; buy them here
