Brickset Bi-monthly Building Challenge Dec 2018-Jan 2019: Art

TheOriginalSimonBTheOriginalSimonB Felixstowe Member Posts: 1,231
Hey howdy hey, time to launch another building challenge...

For the next two months I want you to dust off your smocks, perch a beret on your head and get arty.  Recreate a painting, build a sculpture, send your minidolls off to a gallery, show me around a studio, decorate an everyday household object to look fantastic.  Go modern, abstract, surrealist, Impressionist, cubist - the choice is yours.  I'll even be happy to see art in other media about Lego rather than art made with Lego.

The rules are much as usual:

Your entry has to be a new MOC (or piece of art) created specifically for this challenge.

No more than two images per post in this thread - but feel free to link to others hosted elsewhere.

Art doesn't have to be pretentious.

Enter as many times as you like so long as each entry is in its own post.

Closing Date is 31 January 2019. Winner to be announced in the first few days of February.

Prize will be determined by the winner's owned and wanted lists on the main site so make sure you update those after Christmas and the January sales!

Go get creative...

    I'd say the snowman counts as "art in other media about LEGO"...

    Now the main festivities are out of the way here’s hoping some of you have a few days off and time to create some art.

    Here is my entry! Nothing too fancy, just a sculptor and his current project. Built and rendered in Stud.io.





    I know that my work is garbage but this just made it look ten times worse.

    Art is in the eye of the beholder, I guess...

    I happen to know the looser of it and very well. ;)

    I figure this post is more of a bump than it is an entry since I made did this a bit over a year ago. But hey, figured it was a bit of a different take on recreating lego in art.



    Looking forward to seeing the last few entries sneak into the competition.

    , sorry. I've been trying to do a painting but it's been a while and things didn't really work out like I wanted, I remember now why I stopped doing that and went to bricks to be creative...

    Oh wow! Thank you! Thought it was a good choice for a topic. Really liked the ones that decided to not use bricks as their medium.

    Look forward to seeing what topics future challenges will have.

    Amazing and thoughtful package has arrived. The Bricksy brick is fantastic, very clever. Thanks again for hosting @TheOriginalSimonB!

    Yay!  Glad it arrived safe.

    Anyone want to try hosting another compo again yet?

    I can give it a shot :) It will run until the end of April, right? I should be able to procure some suitable prize by then.
