Italian artist Stefano Bolcato has found a way to combine the seemingly incompatible things: LEGO and classic art. His newest set of paintings is based on LEGO’s yellow minifigures, as he re-imagines iconic paintings with The Brick. From Renaissance masters to Pop Art geniuses, Bolcato has it all covered. The collection of unique paintings, called People includes artworks such as Frida Kahlo’s Self-Portrait, Andy Warhol’s Marilyn, Leonardo da Vinci’s Portrait of an Unknown Woman (La Belle Ferroniere) and others, of course reimagined by Bolcato with LEGO figurines.

Using oil on canvas, just like his inspirators did, Bolcato skillfully replaces the originals with his own yellow, angular models keeping the same attention to detail.
“LEGO were always my favorite toy as a child. The fascination is a holdover from my childhood that I brought into adulthood,” Bolcato shares. “One day I thought about how the figures could become characters, and that they would have the ideal features to take on a story and tell it effectively.”
The paintings are currently on display at the Archeology Museum of Salerno until January 22,
