I remember spending countless hours spelling out bad words on my Lite-Brite (like ‘poop’). The artists behind the masterpieces below probably spent their time more productively.
***Artist Joey Syta recently (and painstakingly) recreated a stunning tapestry from the 15th century called “Mon Seul Désir” (My Only Desire), which is part of famous series of tapestries called “The Lady and the Unicorn”. This took 2 years to create and was made with 55,000 Lite-Brite pegs and 36 pegboards.
***The current world-record for the largest Lite-Brite creation is held by Lori Kanary who made this huge sneaker in conjunction with Asics.
***The 2nd largest Lite-Brite creation is a rendering of Da Vinci’s “Last Supper” designed by artist Mark Beekham.
***And finally, the 3rd biggest Lite-Brite masterpiece was also made by Lori Kanary (remember her from the Asics sneaker?) – it was creatively named “Giant Lite-Brite”, and was inspired by Monet’s “Impression Sunrise”.
