Using Lego as a form of art and as an escape from the pressures of modern life

Lego is a true form of art just as much as any other medium. It allows for endless creativity through building and rebuilding. The beauty of it is that nothing has to be perfect – you can use any color brick, any size brick, and still create a masterpiece with your own hands.

As well as being art, Lego is a great escape from the real world. I personally have been not in the best place mentally these last couple years and Lego has truly been my biggest help. When I’m building, I can forget about any depression or stress that is currently plaguing me and just be in my own little world. I encourage anyone who struggles with any kind of stress, anxiety, or depression to try building Lego, even if just for a little bit, and see how it can help you.
