The Ultimate Reinvention – From Lawyer to Lego Artist
July 28, 2011
In March of 2010, my then-seven-year-old son and I went to the Agora Gallery in Manhattan, where famed Lego artist Nathan Sawaya, a former associate with Winston & Strawn, was exhibiting his extraordinary work. Nathan generously joined us to give my son a personal tour, answer his questions, and review a Lego creation my son had made just for the visit.
I saw the video profile below on Yahoo! last night and had to share it. Nathan is the ultimate reinventor and his story amazes me every time I hear it (I had the chance to interview him for this article in Total Balance magazine). As powerful as his story is, when you experience his work in person, you realize how remarkably talented he is. I am sure that his current tour in Australia will be as successful as his U.S. showcase.
