In 2017 London also homed follow-up exhibition The Art of the Brick: DC Superheroes.

Speaking of his exhibition, Sawaya commented: 'I use LEGO® bricks as my medium because I enjoy seeing people's reactions to artwork created from something with which they are familiar. Everyone can relate to it since it is a toy that many children have at home'.
