Roy Lichtenstein Sunrise Mosaic
A LEGO mosaic replicating Roy Lichtenstein's painting Sunrise.
About this creation


The mosaic laid out on the floor. It use 3, 48x48 gray baseplates and 9, 16x24 green baseplates to support. The mosaic measures approximately 45x22 inches and includes about 4,000 LEGO pieces.






My little helper installing the first part of the mosaic.





My little helper with me installing more of the top row. Also showing the technic hanging assembly.





The top half of the mosaic installed.





The complete mosaic installed, along with the frame which conveniently hides the hanging assembly. One small section on the botton right is missing the 1x1 dark pink round plates, as I ran out. I'll order more eventually.





A closeup of the sun area. Roy Lichtenstein was a master of the process known as Benday, which is a technique of applying shading to artwork and print. To emulate this process with LEGO, I opted to add 1x1 round plates on top of the base layer, which creates a similar shading effect.




A closeup of the artist's name. The lettering is oriented with studs up... to the right actually. Each letter measures 5 studs up and 5 studs wide.





A closeup of the painting's name Sunrise, using the same technique.





A picture of the painting, which was used as the model.





Roy Lichtenstein painted a companion piece called Clouds & Sea, which has the same dimensions. If I can scrounge up enough 1x1 round plates, perhaps I'll build this one also.
