Artist Playfully Reimagines Classic Art Paintings As LEGO People

Inspired by Frida Kahlo’s Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird, 1940:

“LEGO were always my favorite toy as a child. The fascination is a holdover from my childhood that I brought into adulthood,” Bolcato shares. “One day I thought about how the figures could become characters, and that they would have the ideal features to take on a story and tell it effectively.”

Inspired by Andy Warhol’s Four Marilyns, 1964:

Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s Portrait of an Unknown Woman (La Belle Ferroniere), 1490:

Inspired by Sandro Botticelli’s Portrait of Dante, c. 1495:

Inspired by Piero della Francesca’s Portrait of the Duke of Urbino and Portrait of the Duchess of Urbino, c. 1465:

Inspired by Pollaiolo’s Portrait of a Young Woman, c. 1470:
