Balakov is amazing. I’ve gone through his entire profile numerous times, and his work is so clever. He creatively combines LEGOs with classic photographs, historical figures, Star Wars, and just general daily life scenarios. How he comes up with the ideas and actually executes them just baffles and amazes me. If I wasn’t commuting next year and had a dorm (angst), I would undoubtedly buy his prints and post them all over my wall.
Also, I don’t think I’ll ever grow out of LEGOs. Ever.
