Nathan Sawaya's parents told him at the age of 10 that they wouldn't allow him to get a dog. So, he built one, a life-size one, out of Legos. Now, he is opening a new exhibition of LEGO sculptures at the Art & Culture Center of Hollywood called, In Pieces. Sawaya collaborated with Australian photographer, Dean West, to create a highly stylized representation of contemporary life through large-scale photography.
