Politics Meets Art in Belfast Murals
Murals of Belfast have in the past and still do create a sense belonging and identity for residents. However, not all such murals were designed to incite hatred or divide communities. Some show a more Celtic flair and inject colour into less established areas:

Murals concerning the political polices of the USA and the war in Israel have been popular as well, because many Belfast residents feel they can relate to the violence in other countries:

Ill get the ball rolling with a short review on lego art

Nathan Sawaya is an internationally known ex-lawyer professional Lego artist’s whose work has been featured throughout the world. Nathan Sawaya is perfectly willing to fulfill any commission you can think up of, and if custom ideas are slow, he has plenty of his own ideas to flesh out.

Nathan Sawaya has made several portraits of himself (including a full-sized sculpture), and has even gotten a tattoo of the famous Lego indentations on his thumb; a fitting tribute to something that fueled his childhood imagination, and kept him employed as an adult.

This man is a genius!!

Lego sculptures seem like a natural avenue for Lego art, but portraits are another of Nathan Sawaya’s secret weapons. Placing pieces in just the right order, he’s able to create realistic and artful portraits of anyone with incredible detail.
