Bricksy

One of my favourite artists is Banksy and one of my favourite toys when growing up was LEGO, so you can imagine my excitement when I found this. Canadian photographer Jeff Friesen has created a series of photos that merge these two elements, recreating some of Banksy’s most famous pieces in LEGO brick form.

Friesen has then played on LEGO’s values of imagination and creativity, visualising what the wider context of the piece is by placing it within a larger LEGO environment.

Here’s a few of my favourites;

Fenton 4GEE

Obviously EE are not content with just their fantastic yet perhaps slightly too long Kevin Bacon adverts which¬†they’ve been releasing recently. They’ve created this new video to promote the streaming capabilities of their 4G network, by using one of the most popular viral videos of all time.

What they have made is a complete HD remake of the famous Fenton video, complete with dramatic pans, slow motion and even dinosaurs!! Designed by Poke with Passion Pictures, it is rather amazing!

Here’s the video;
