Legos have always fascinated me, but that doesn’t mean I always understand it. As someone that has trouble following directions and instructions, putting together the sometimes complicated set structures can be difficult. I’d rather watch someone else do it and just do my own thing, trying to create my own masterpieces which sometimes turns into some sort of abstract art that only I can understand and appreciate. There must be others there like me since Lego is now releasing something for that demographic.
The 31210 Modern Art set has 805 pieces that you can play around with, which is pretty small considering the thousands of pieces that some sets like the Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings set have. But what makes this different and even more interesting for some people is that you can create your own abstract art without following any instructions. Well, it does come with some form of instructions for the four separate brick sculptures that you can create out of it but you can also follow your own rhythm.
Each set comes with several shapes like rectangles, triangles, and circles. You also get various colors like red, yellow, green, pink, black, and white. While you can choose to follow the 4 options that you can create with the accompanying patterns, since this is modern art after all, you can just do your own thing and create masterpieces according to your mood and fancy. You could always do that with the random lego pieces that aren’t part of some big pop culture structure but this is the first time that a set is built for some abstract pieces.
If you’re happy with the Lego art you’ve created, you can also display it with the hanger element that comes with the set. You can come up with something that’s at a maximum 12.5 inches high and 7.5 inches wide so it will look good on your wall or countertop. The Lego Modern Art set goes for sale on August 1, 2023 for just $49.99.
