The Art of the Brick: Super Heroes has been created by Lego artist Nathan Sawaya in collaboration with Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, and is running until September.

The contemporary art exhibition uses nearly 2,000,000 bricks to create large-scale sculptures of famous super heroes and villains, from Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, to The Joker and Harley Quinn.

Groups visiting the new exhibition will explore, through a series of immersive galleries, Sawaya’s interpretations of characters, vehicles, environments and themes found throughout the DC Super Heroes mythology.

The Lego sculptures will depict transformation and reinvention, strength and weakness, and good vs. evil.

More than 120 works of art will be on display in a purpose built space on South Bank, and highlights will include a 5.5 metre long Batmobile.

The London opening of The Art of the Brick: Super Heroes follows a successful run in Madrid.
