„Great Wave“ made of 50,000 LEGO blocks
While some artists work with granite or clay, others, like the Japanese artist Jumpei Mitsui, employ more unusual substances. He is one of only 21 qualified professional LEGO architects, and his area of expertise is creating unique artworks out of many, vibrant LEGO bricks in various sizes. The Great Wave Off Kanagawa, a renowned woodblock image by Hokusai, was lately recreated in amazing 3D scale by Mitsui using 50,000 LEGO pieces. It shows the famous blue wave coming to crash over the old-fashioned boats traveling over the sea.
Despite the fact that Mitsui is an accomplished LEGO builder—as demonstrated in his Instructional videos sizable undertaking needed extra preparation and study. He researched the motion of waves crashing in many movies and read through many scholarly articles that discussed the physics behind huge wave formations in order to successfully reproduce the initial concept. The ultimate star’s appearance was then shown in drawings created by Mitsui. He used every distinguishable component from Hokusai’s artwork, including Mount Fuji and the rowboats steered by sailors. The Hankyu Brick Gallery in Osaka, Japan, is where you can view the finished artwork, which is around 4 feet by 5 feet overall.
With LEGO blocks, designer Jumpei Mitsui reproduced Hokusai’s Great Wave.
