LEGO makes too many awesome things for our wallets to handle! One of their newest projects is a series of pop culture-themed art posters that you can build yourself. (Can you hear that in the distance? That’s me, fanboying. Loudly.)

The new LEGO Art lineup has four incredible sets, including Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe, portraits of the legendary band The Beatles, different versions of the Iron Man suit, and a set of Sith portraits from Star Wars. Scroll down and have a look, dear Pandas. Just don’t give in to the Dark Side of the Force. Another cool thing is that each of these sets comes with its own unique soundtrack for you to listen to while you’re putting your poster together. Now that’s a whole new level of immersion.

Bored Panda spoke about the mosaic posters with Samuel Johnson, the design lead for the LEGO Art range. Scroll down for our full in-depth interview with him!

LEGO released its new Art range with 4 pop culture-inspired sets. They’re mosaic posters that you can build yourself!

“For decades, LEGO has been experts in recreating icons of the world that we live in, in three dimensions. We have seen many adults (including some celebrities) building with LEGO bricks to relax and escape from the stress of daily life. LEGO Art embraces this mindset!” Samuel told Bored Panda.

“LEGO Art is aimed at both adults that are familiar with the LEGO universe, but also those that may never have considered purchasing a LEGO set before. The 2-Dimensional building platform is easy to master and escape in. With a new style of building instruction and included ‘soundtrack’ to engage and immerse yourself in your favorite passions. Each set includes a soundtrack and options to build alternate mosaics.”

Samuel explained that the 4 sets each focus on a different passion. “We chose both Star Wars and MARVEL’s Iron Man as they are familiar to LEGO and our fans. But where someone that really enjoys Iron Man (for example) may not have been interested in owning a playset-type product, this is an entirely new offering for them,” he said.

“LEGO does not have a huge foothold within the art passion, so we spent a long time deciding which art/artist would be the best fit for the launch year of LEGO Art. Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe Diptych really lends itself well to the LEGO color palette and interchangeability of colors within the same design.”

He continued: “Lastly, our focus on music + LEGO continues to grow as we have adapted extremely recognizable photos of John, Paul, George and Ringo into unique artworks for our Beatles set that shows these influential artists in the prime of their careers inspiring future musicians the world over.”

Bored Panda wanted to know whether we can expect the LEGO Art lineup to expand with new posters in the new future. Samuel told us that they’ve already got a lot of ideas on the table for new sets. “Stay tuned,” he said.
