Our favorite LEGO artist, Nathan Sawaya, has decided to do something a little different this time around. His newest project takes LEGO bricks to the streets of New York City. Meet Hugman, a humanoid LEGO structure built to hug various objects in populated areas.
While Hugman rarely spends more than one day in one given spot (we imagine he’d be subject to vandalism if left much longer), seeing a LEGO sculpture in any capacity should be enough to change your day for the better. If not, we truly pity the fool. Hit the jump for a video of the many exploits of Hugman, as well as a map depicting Hugman’s many appearances around the city.
