Lego love

BLM Lego street art, Cardiff

Brighton based brick artist BLM paid Cardiff a visit to help celebrate the opening of a new Lego shop.

blm4Specialising in Lego based art BLM was commissioned by the Bricks at Home shop to make 30 pieces of Lego art and release them to the city’s streets.

Firstly this wonderous Welsh dragon was placed outside the National Museum of Wales …… and instantly disappeared.

To mark the opening of this pop-up Lego shop, based in the Morgan Arcade, lots of purple hearts built entirely from Lego were placed on the street of Cardiff.

Each heart was attached with a magnet to various lamp posts around St Mary Street, Womanby Street and even Caroline Street where the artist also added his name and shop details to the back.

The artist also left one more nugget for the people of Cardiff to enjoy – this mouse on the side of the River Taff near the Millennium Stadium.

Can you spot it yet?

The mouse was constructed from numerous small Lego blocks in white, grey, black and pink with this little creation securely glued to the concrete wall.

But not securely enough as it only lasted a few days before he managed to escape.

I wonder why he went – was it the constant stream of all the late night revellers that he couldn’t take any more and bricked it?
