David Hughes is a designer and artist who exclusively uses LEGO bricks to create contemporary art.

He uses the humble, basic, recognizable LEGO brick and elevates it into modern art through his careful and meticulous designs. His art engages with people because it appeals to all of us who played with LEGO as children while, at the same time, exploring grown-up ideas of contemporary art and design.

His wall mosaics are accessible, colourful and fun. Whether they are classic works of pop-art re-made in bricks, LEGO mosaic portraits or bright, graphic based images from popular culture, they all make you smile. Just as LEGO should.

His figurative sculptures push the limits of what Lego can be. He uses the hard, orthogonal, plastic LEGO bricks to create impossibly graceful and beautiful sculptures capturing the emotion and essence of the subject.
