- Have you heard of Jan Vormann? He’s the German artist who travels around the world repairing buildings with broken crevices and filling them with Lego. Vormann’s project titled Dispatchwork has spread worldwide in cities like London, New York, and Tel Aviv. The bright and colorful composition create a delightful juxtaposition from the actual mundane building walls, wouldn’t you agree?
What is it all supposed to mean? Vormann says that there is no real meaning behind his works. His main goal however is to get people to stop in their tracks, draw their attention and hopefully ask themselves why the Lego was there. His works have become so popular that people from all over the world have begun their own ‘dispatchwork’ in their own cities.
Below are images of some of Vormann’s works.
Here’s a short video by Deutsche Welle documenting Vormann’s project:
