The CryptoBrickie Collection
CryptoBrickies, or “Brickies” for short, are pop art re-imaginings of plastic building toys in the form of public figures, celebrities and fictional characters. Ultimately, they are portraits where the artist aims to choose subjects which will never be made into real-life toys.
The Brickies are child-like and innocent blank canvases. Their extreme stylisation forces me to focus on only what matters to capture the subject.
The challenge (and enjoyment) for me is capturing the likeness of a subject in only a few lines and shapes. Just like the toys though, there are infinite possibilities and fresh new takes.
