A photographer has used his seven-year-old daughter’s Lego to recreate the works of street artist Banksy. Jeff Friesen has recreated many of the mysterious street artist’s iconic works from the plastic bricks. The 42-year-old from Halifax, Canada, used his daughter June’s Lego to complete the project he calls Bricksy.
Each scene takes Jeff about a day including Lego building and photography. He says he typically takes five or six versions of each scene. He said: ‘A lot of time is spent looking for Lego parts, as my daughter has access to the same brick collection, which are technically hers.
‘I think of Banksy as a culture-shifting phenomenon…not just for his artwork but for his wit and his toying with the art world. Even his critics cannot deny a before-Banksy and after-Banksy moment’, said Friesen.
