A Lego Version of Qin Shi Huang’s Army is Being Chalked Up in Saratosa Florida

I love art, specially street art. Whether it be people drawing ON the side walk, or people drawing IN the sidewalk. A while back I had the opportunity to visit San Antonio, TX, a place full of sidewalk art drawers and performers. The guy was making planets out of spray can bottles, you know, the typical stuff. But out in Saratosa Florida, a group of artist based out of the Netherlands are actually making Lego Armies on the street. The image to the left shows you how the whole project is looking right now, and that’s not half bad. I can’t wait to see it when it’s done, the image at the bottom shows you how it’s going to look once it’s finished.

The drawing is part of Planet Street painting, the group of street artist came together to bring you amazing historic images using Lego pieces. Leon Keer, an art director in charge of the drawings is trying to bring the Terracotta Army to life, it’s going to be depicting the armies of Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China. If you don’t know who that guy is, the image at the bottom will instantly remind you of what I’m talking about.  If you’re in the Florida area, you need to stop by the Sidewalk Chalk Festival and check out what they have in the works!
