This weekend my exhibition at the Centre for Life, Newcastle, opened. North East Lego Landmarks showcases my work from the last couple of years recreating iconic buildings and structures from the North East of England. It includes Angel of the North, BALTIC, Civic Centre, St James’ Park, Transporter Bridge and more.
Reaction so far has been fantastic, and I’m thrilled with how the models look in the Centre.
The exhibition runs until May 14th and entry is included with the standard tickets price for the Centre. See here for more details.
Here it is – the first completed St James’ Park made from Lego. One of three commissioned by Newcastle United Foundation. This one will be auctioned off very shortly. Number two could be yours for the price of a raffle ticket! Watch this space for more details…
Latest project folks – St James’ Park in Newcastle, home of Newcastle United Football Club. The Newcastle United Foundation have commissioned me to build 3 of these models, approx 26×20 inches. This is not finished yet but watch this space to see final shots, and to hear about how you might get your hands on one!
Latest build – the fantastic Art Deco Wills Building in Newcastle. Once a cigarette factory, the building was converted into luxury apartments in 1999 by George Wimpey.
My latest mini-build – the fantastic Art Deco signage of the Tyneside Cinema in Newcastle.
Check out the cinema here. Screenshot of the signage from their website is below:
Really getting into these monochrome mini-builds! This is the main entrance to the headquarters of Sage, the software group based in Newcastle.
Got a few irons in the fire with Lego architectural builds, with a really exciting commission just about confirmed – details to follow soon hopefully. For now I’m tinkering with another iconic Newcastle building – sneak preview shown here.
