Warner Bros has enlisted the talents of a LEGO artist to take a travelling exhibition of LEGO DC Comics characters on the road.

The studio has partnered with Nathan Sawaya – the man behind the revered The Art of the Brick show – to showcase LEGO interpretations of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, the Joker and more.

The artist has already created superhero displays of Catwoman, Superman and Batman made of LEGO for DC in the past, primarily for San Diego Comic-Con.

“This is an amazing opportunity as an artist to be granted the privilege to bring the pages of DC Comics to life and to interpret some of the most famous and iconic characters in history,” said Sawaya.

“I look forward to bringing these characters to life in new ways that uniquely fir the medium.”

Warner Bros Consumer Products worked with DC Entertainment to develop the show, which will launch this autumn and embark on its worldwide tour.

“Nathan Sawaya is truly a master in his craft which we have experienced first hand through previous collaborations,” said Brad Globe, president of Warner Bros Consumer Products.

“Much like the characters of the DC Comics universe, The Art of the Brick has broad appeal. We are thrilled to be partnering with Nathan to tour this truly unique interpretation around the world for fans of all ages to experience.”
