The Oscars 2016 is almost upon us, so here is my life-size nanoblock Oscar Statuette. Using over 1,500 bricks, it took me around 20 hours to design & build. It is at 1:1 scale, so it stands at about 13.5 inches tall. In the photo below, you see it next to an iPhone 6 for scale.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Malaysian Nano Brick Artist Makes It Big
Feb 15, 2016
Internationally renowned award-winning Malaysian nano brick artist Christopher Tan releases his own designs as official nanoblock sets in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. In this first ever collaboration between an independent artist outside Japan with Kawada, the makers of nanoblock, Chris brings us a series of four nanoblock Japanese Food items - Sushi, Bento, Ramen and Temaki.
Only 3,024 of each item is being released, making them highly sought after limited release collectibles for nanoblock fans worldwide. They are available now in Malaysia at Kinokuniya, Aeon, Toys R Us, Hamleys, Popular, Isetan and other stockists, and retail at RM39.90 each.
Chris has been a full-time nano brick artist for over two years now, having started building with nanoblock over five years ago as a hobby. “It is like a dream come true to be able to finally have my own creations released commercially as official nanoblock sets" says Christopher, obviously overjoyed.
Over the years, Chris has grown a huge fan base of over 51,000 fans worldwide on Facebook (facebook.com/christan) and many more on other popular social media channels.
He has been involved in various international collaborations, most recently with Hong Kong film director Pang Ho-Cheung to create a limited edition Christmas gift. Last year, Chris had a successful art exhibition in Liang Court mall in Singapore and two art exhibitions in Malaysia in conjunction with AniManGaki 2015 and C2AGE 2015. In 2014, he had an exhibition in East Point City in Hong Kong during the World Cup season where he was involved with the design and construction of the largest nanoblock creation in the world, using over 250,000 bricks.
