As any Lego fan will tell you, there's no limit to what you can build with the famous bricks. From buildings to spaceships to statues to rollercoasters, there's a Lego set for almost everything. And with its latest announcement, Lego is embracing one of its more niche uses: art.

Lego has announced four Lego Art sets, which will allow builders to craft 2D posters based on Star Wars, The Beatles, Iron Man and Andy Warhol's Marilyn Monroe. While there are lots of brilliant Lego sets for adults, a set that you can hang on your wall certainly feels like a departure. Lego art has been around for a while, but it's a treat to see the company officially endorse the medium.
