Megx Lego Bridge street art

When we were kids, we spent a troubling amount of time surrounded by an up-turned bucket of Lego bricks. There was nothing we couldn't create given enough time, and no model kit was safe from cannibalization. Life is always better with Legos. Just ask the German street artist Megx. He recently set about transforming a droll former railroad bridge in Wuppertal, Germany into a brightly-colored Lego creation. Locals have transformed the old rail line into a pedestrian path (like New York's High Line), and Megx set about painting the underside of the bridge itself to resemble the belly of everyone's favorite childhood toy. We're particularly fond of the iconic green flat roadbed, ourselves.

Megx has an impressive street-art portfolio packed with perspective-oriented pieces, though the Lego bridge is by far the most lighthearted work to date. Head over to the Megx site for a closer look.
