In its effort to capture the adult audience, LEGO has introduced several new themes. Today, I’ll be looking at one of those themes: LEGO Art.
The premise is simple: Place 1 x 1 Tiles or Plates on a large baseplate, creating a mosaic. For the baseplate, LEGO has created a new brick, the 65803 Brick Special 16 x 16 x 1 1/3 with Pinholes. It’s technically a POOP (Part out of Parts), consisting of a Plate 16 x 16, with a Brick 2 x 2 underneath at each corner, Technic Bricks along the sides, and a Brick 4 x 4 in the center. With the pinholes in the sides, you can connect multiple bricks into a canvas.
