These are just so amazing. In Pieces is a two-year, multimedia collaboration between sculptor, Nathan Sawaya and Toronto-based Australian hyper-realistic photographer Dean West.

West’s seven photos subtly incorporate Sawaya’s Lego objects, not to mention an artist cameo. The exhibit premiered Dec. 10 at the William J. Clinton Presidential Center Library in Little Rock, AR (Clinton is a one of Sawaya’s biggest fans) and ran through Feb. 1 before moving to the Avant gallery in New York.

“There’s a fun, nostalgic aspect to Legos–people connect to the art on a different level,” says Sawaya. “But it’s also a medium that lets me design anything I can imagine. I especially enjoy creating curvy forms using rectangular pieces. Up close, you notice the sharp angles, but when you back away, the corners blend into curves. There’s a magic in the perspective.”
