Banksy + LEGOs = Bricksy

If imitation is the highest form of flattery, imitation in LEGO form is stratospheric praise. Or something like that. Either way, photographer Jeff Friesen is paying homage to Banksy's most memorable guerrilla street art installations by recreating them in LEGO dioramas, complete with painted toy brick facades, costumed minifigures, and his own imaginative riffing.

And even if it didn't require him to go under the cloak of darkness or protect his identity for fear of retribution, the Bricksy Series is nonetheless an exciting reveal.
