Banksy Gets a Lego Makeover #ArtTuesday

Banksy Feature Cropped

Canadian photographer Jeff Friesen came up with a fun way to pass time with his 7-year-old daughter June by recreating the elusive British street artist Banksy’s more playful stencils, reports NBC’s Today.com.

Friesen is a professional photographer, specializing in landscape, but like any doting father he works to keep his daughter entertained during the summer months when school is out.

The duo began their Lego creations, entitled Bricksy, building scenes set in Canada, moving to the States, and landing in London. Friesen wanted to include one of Banksy’s iconic images in the London construction, but found himself undecided. Rather than settling on one painting, the father and daughter team tackled 20 of Banksy’s designs.

“It’s a fun medium to work with, but also challenging with its limited geometry,” Friesen told Today. “My daughter makes and photographs her own scenes. I try to stay out of her way as much as possible.”
