"Immortal"

Description: “Immortal” depicts Chadwick Boseman, a talented actor with an impressive filmography. He may be best known for portraying Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Among other notable roles, he also starred in 42 (depicting Jackie Robinson), Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (depicting trumpet player Levee Green for which he won a Golden Globe award for Best Actor), and Get on Up (depicting James Brown). Beyond acting, Chadwick Boseman was a generous donor to many causes and advocated for voting rights, before his death, at age 43, of colon cancer. What an amazing legacy he left.

Inspiration: I created this mosaic as a commission, and it is inspired by an amazing spray paint portrait of Chadwick by the very talented, Ed Booth.

Size: ~5,000 hand-painted LEGO bricks and it measures ~32″ wide x 42″ tall (including frame). 

Hours to build: ~50 (completed in 2023). 

“Immortal” was presented at the 2023 Ann Arbor District Library LEGO contest.
