In the world we have only 21 LEGO Certified Professionals and Junpei Mitsui is the only one from Japan, and he is the youngest-ever when he was named a LEGO Certified Professional in 2011 at the age of 24.
He was born in Akashi City, Mitsui’s newest LEGO masterpiece can be seen on permanent display at the Hankyu Brick Museum in Osaka. For his new work, Mitsui recreated Hokusai’s iconic Great Wave off Kanagawa, from 50,000 pieces of LEGO. And it took him 400 hours to finish.
Mitsui says it’s one of the greatest works he’s ever created. Check out the photos and video of the incredible creation below.
