I find Hugman fascinating and I admire the skills of Nathan in building such an incredible brick masterpiece. The concept of a traveling Hugmen has made it even more interesting. It is absolutely striking and everyone will surely become curious about the Hugman.
About the Adventures of Hugman
Nathan is popularly known as a brick artist, and he used bricks in this creation. Nathan created a Hugman who likes to give hugs. The Hugman hugs anything – like that of sign poles, park benches, racks and fence posts. Hugman hugs almost anything as long as his arms can fit around it. Nathan has started putting Hugmen all around the city of New York. What’s interesting is that they “walk off”, and so they only stay in one place for a day or two. Recently, Nathan has also taken Hugman along with him while he is traveling and has left Hugmen in many different parts of the country.
About the Artist
Nathan Sawaya is a New York-based artist who makes fascinating works of art. His recent global museum exhibitions feature large-scale sculptures which were built with toy blocks. Nathan Sawaya’s art is presently touring museums in a show entitled, The Art of the Brick. It’s the first exhibition ever that concentrates solely on LEGO as an art medium. Nathan currently has more than 2.5 million colored bricks in his New York and Los Angeles art studios. His work is enthusiastically and meticulously crafted. Nathan’s skill to transform LEGO bricks into something novel, his dedication to scale and color excellence, and the way he intellectualizes the action of the subject matter, allows him to transform an ordinary toy into a fine art.
Thank you very much Nathan Sawaya for allowing us to post and share your Hugman. If you wish to know more about his wonderful art of brick, you can go and visit his website.
