Sculptor Nathan Sawaya creates art using Lego bricks

Former corporate lawyer Nathan Sawaya is now a New York-based artist who makes sculptures out of toy bricks.

Speaking to BBC Breakfast, he said: "This is what I do for a living, I create art and I decided for my medium I would choose toy bricks."

He told the presenters that he hoped children who saw his exhibition would be inspired to create more themselves.

His work is being exhibited in The Art of the Brick show at London's Old Truman Brewery Gallery from Friday.
