Brisbane Airport looking for an artist with a love for Lego!

Brisbane Airport wants their next 'artist in residence' to have a special talent – a love for Lego! 

For the Australian gateway is on the hunt to find the perfect candidate to fulfil the position of ‘LEGO®ist-in-Residence’.

Julieanne Alroe, Brisbane Airport Corporation's CEO and managing director, said the exciting position was being offered as part of Brisbane Airport’s hugely successful ‘Artist-in-Residence’ programme.

She said: "Brisbane Airport is the first airport in Australia to offer an Artist-in-Residence programme that was launched in 2015 with renowned realist painter Robert Brownhall who created a series of works featuring passengers, aircraft and incredible landscape views.

“In 2016, The Queensland Symphony Orchestra treated passengers and visitors to six ‘pop-up’ performances at the International and Domestic Terminals.

“This time we thought we’d venture outside the box of traditional art and performance and into a space that most of us have dabbled in at some stage in our life, but with a view of taking it to new heights.

“From its humble beginnings LEGO has truly transcended the realms of toy boxes across the world and is growing in popularity with creative artists producing mind-boggling installations from the colourful blocks. 

“We saw real opportunity in engaging someone skilled in this art form to become Brisbane Airport’s next Artist-in-Residence and we’re excited about what a LEGO®ist will bring to the program.
