Jan Voorman’s LEGO Street Art
Art & Design
We’re all for artists who want to make the world a brighter place, and German artist Jan Voorman is taking a particularly colorful approach: by filling the unsightly structural gaps caused by urban decay with the universally recognized plastic LEGO brick.
Entitled Dispatchwork, the project, which has so far encompassed a slew of major cities on 4 continents, seeks to add a flash of color to dull, neglected patches of walls and buildings, while, in the process, encouraging others to follow suit with their own LEGO contributions.
Says Voorman, “I am seeking to improve the appearance of public spaces in different ways. Dispatchwork aims to seal fissures in broken walls worldwide, completing the material compilation in urban constructing, and adding color to the urban grey scales by inserting a very basic construction material.”
