My name is Didier Burtin, also known as Did&TheBricks. Born in Paris in 1975, I’ve been living for 5 years in Barcelona.
I’m a Lego Artist, I create mosaics and sculptures with Lego Bricks. I like to break the rules using a medium in principle dedicated to children and to turn it into pieces of Art. Indeed, The Lego brick is the world’s most popular toy. The variety of bricks, colors and shapes offers millions of possibilities: not only to build small cars, planes and castles but to create nature curves, human forms and abstract shapes.
As a painter with his brushes and paints, as a sculptor with his tools and marble blocks, my workshop is full of more than 500 000 Lego bricks sorted by shapes and colors.
