From Jeff Friesen, award-winning photographer and author of United States of LEGO®, comes a hilarious new book of diorama photographs that uses LEGO bricks to spoof the famous work of the mysterious anonymous graffiti artist known as Banksy. Friesen gives new meaning to gritty street art using clean, modernist bricks. Bricksy goes beyond transforming the medium by expanding the scenes it plays on and adding a humorous twist to each one. Each of the eighty-four photographs is wittily captioned, delightful to look at, and appropriate for a wide range of ages. At the end of the book is a legend featuring thumbnail reproductions of each original Banksy so readers can test their knowledge of Banksy's catalogue with Friesen's LEGO spinoffs. While traditional street art is often rushed along by the threat of local law enforcement, Friesen has bountiful time to reimagine Banksy's work into glossy LEGO glory that comes off the walls and springs to life. Banksy's iconic characters gain intriguing new stories. Readers will discover where Banksy's monkeys are taking charge and who the bouquet thrower's star-crossed lover is. You've never seen Banksy like this before. You've never seen LEGO like this before. Bricksy is a must-have book for fans of Banksy, fans of LEGO, and anyone with a sense of humor
