Street Artist Paints a Bridge in Germany to Look Like Giant LEGO Bricks

LEGO bricks are a lovely childhood memory for most people, except for the ones who once stepped on that painful little piece of plastic. But jokes aside, LEGO is a great toy to enhance both creativity and logic, and in 2011 a street artist named Megx (Martin Heuwold) paid his respects to this great design.
He was commissioned by the city of Wuppertal from the Rhine-Westphalia region in western Germany to bring color into the life of this small town by painting one of its bridges.
The Schwesterstraße bridge was just an old and dull railway crossing until Megx decided to transform it into colorful bricks of LEGO. The artist was inspired by his daughter’s love for the toy and contacted the LEGO Group to ask for permission before painting his piece. After the company’s approval, Megx gathered his team and spent two weeks painting the 2,700-square-foot bridge.
Thanks to his ingenious use of colors and shading, the artist managed to make the painting look truly life-like and leave the impression of the bridge being built out of actual LEGOs.
Since the bridge is known as the Lego-Brücke (the Lego Bridge) and it even won the Deutscher Fassadenpreis Advancement Prize in 2012.
