LEGO – Decaying Houses by Mike Doyle

LEGO_Mike-Doyle_Victorian-Mud-HeapWe all love playing with LEGO, but artist Mike Doyle is a guy who doesn’t mind spending countless hours upon hours in his endeavor to create amazing art using the famous bricks. And one of his projects was to create abandoned houses using only white, gray, and black blocks, ending up with creations that look like they’re haunted, infested with the most terrifying apparitions imaginable.

But what’s most impressive about these sets is just how detailed they are. Considering their massive size (some are measured in feet, not inches), you really begin to lose sight of the fact that they’re created with Lego and, instead, think that they are made of something else entirely. It’s seriously impressive.

Check out more of Mike’s art HERE. This is what the artist had to say about the snow-covered, two-storey build below:

To my eyes, patterns of decay find a more pleasing path than an untouched object. A roof collapsed by the weight of snow, side shingles ripped by the force of winds, substructures rotting, insects and weather gnawing the exposed surfaces. I can picture those windy days where a shingle flies off. Or the sudden creaking, cracking and burst of tinder giving way under snow’s heavy hand.
