Dutch artist Elroy Klee created a series of hair wigs made entirely out of LEGO bricks for the “Mindplay: Bricks on Me” fashion photoshoot. We have seen LEGO used to create a log of amazing stuff, but couture-esque hairstyles is a new category and we’re impressed. We love the black afro, the layered blond cut and the sassy red crop wigs that were constructed in segments before they were assembled into a whole piece after being fitted to each model’s head. Kudos also go out to the models who had to remain incredibly still while managing to look awesome to prevent the LEGO wig from crashing to the ground. We admire Klee’s concept to use LEGO blocks as high-fashion accessories for this advertisement photo shoot. Surely he has presented LEGO blocks in a way that has not yet been considered.
Klee is a former graffiti artist and owner of a design studio where he works as a freelance art director/illustrator in the fields of conceptualization, illustration, 3D and set design. His work is a mixture of urban street art, experimental transformer style, typo and a bit of Dutch design with extraordinary use of colour and craftsmanship.
