Large mosaic art pieces from small household objects have become quite the common practice over the past couple years.  Just the other day we took a look at the awesome Keyboard Key Celebrity Mosaic Portraits, and now we take a look at another fascinating piece from Kevin Champeny.

The New York based artist has become quite skilled in these mosaic pieces, and has developed an impressive collection. Seeing that we grew up playing with toy cars, in comes as no surprise the Hot Wheels mosaic was our personal favorite. The piece was of course constructed by hand, and took over 4,400 hot wheels to assemble. To put in perspective, the Hot Wheels piece is 9 feet wide, 4 feet tall, 3 feet deep, and tips the scales at a staggering 550 pounds.
