Jan Vormann Repairs Crumbling Monuments With… Lego Bricks!

Jan Vormann, 26, is a German artist who has spent the last three years travelling the world fixing crumbling walls and monuments using Lego. Vorman took his project from its humble beginnings at an art fair in Rome and brightened up thousands of people's days with his brightly colored plastic Lego bricks.

Mr Vormann said: "My favourite work was done in Berlin. I filled in the holes still left by guns and shrapnel from the Second World War. That drew people's attention to the Lego and hopefully they would ask themselves why the Lego was there"
