10 Secrets of a Superhero Revealed

What does it take to be a superhero? Here are 10 qualities which can see you onto greatness:
  1. Superheroes never give up
  2. They get the job done
  3. They are the best at what they do because they believe in themselves and focus on their strengths
  4. Superheroes have a clear, defined purpose
  5. They don’t seek glory, they focus on the bigger picture
  6. Superheroes help each other
  7. They work well on their own but are even better when they work with others eg The Avengers
  8. A superhero’s real strength comes not from his or her powers, but from their strength of character
  9. They all have a flaw and continue to try to overcome it
  10. All superheroes have an arch-enemy eg Superman and Lex Luthor, Spiderman and the Green Goblin.
A new art exhibition THE ART OF THE BRICK: DC SUPER HEROES celebrates 80 years of comic book history. Following his much celebrated London debut with his original global touring production THE ART OF THE BRICK in 2014 which was housed at Brick Lane’s Truman Brewery, Nathan Sawaya has returned with a striking new exhibition exploring the qualities of a superhero.
Sawaya is acknowledged as being the first artist to successfully move LEGO® into the art world. His touring exhibition THE ART OF THE BRICK, has entertained and inspired millions of art lovers and enthusiasts around the world.
Just as Superman, we all have our own story. This art collection is based on the elements of the journey of a superhero, including the moment in which we are all called to the adventure’ Nathan Sawaya
The exhibition is the world’s largest collection of artworks by DC characters and includes more than 120 original works, created exclusively from LEGO® pieces, including an impressive life-size Batmobile (5.5m) and built from half a million standard pieces. Inspired by legendary characters such as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, the Joker, Harley Quinn, amongst others, Sawaya has captured on a large scale some of the most iconic superheroes and villains from DC.
Not only are some of the lifesize replicas impressive, the cubist interpretations add a touch of unexpected class. He has even managed to capture Wonder Woman’s invisible jet.
Sawaya’s notes remind us to hold onto our dreams and to live them every day. They explore the idea of who superheroes are and what they can do and that there is a hero within us all. Now you know the 10 secrets of being a superhero how will you choose to use your powers?
