If you live in New York, the chances are you probably walk by this poster at least once in the subway station. The talented New York based artist best known for its custom three-dimensional sculptures and large-scale mosaics from popular everyday items and is best known for his work with standard LEGO toy bricks.

Before Playstation became every teenage boy's household item, Lego was an important part of childhood. You start with a small box of Legos, carefully follow the instruction and recreate the scene on the box display. As you build up your ego (and prove that you are capable of reading and following instructions), you move forward to bigger box. With more variety of bricks and increasingly complex project, Lego is as fun as watching batman movies. The only thing I didn't know... is if you can manage 15000-25000 of those little pieces, you can build something so amazing... like a life form human being.

What happen when Nathan meets Fashion? Allow me to introduce you to Nathan's fashion fantasies. His work is not only eye pleasing, every single one delivers its own story and emotions and creativities.
