Artist Uses a Rake to Create Amazingly Surreal and Enormous Sand Paintings
Some artists like to work on large scale projects, but few artists work on the grand-scale of Andres Amador. Pristine beaches have become the canvas of Andres’ projects. He creates massive artistic plans that cover an entire beach and then calls upon dozens of assistants to help rake them into reality. The final creations are fascinating to see from overhead. Flowers emerge on the beach. Dramatic geometric patterns leap from the sand. Swirls of action flow from the edge of the water to the edge of the rocky cliffs. The massive works are captured on camera after hours of hard work by his entire team, who then watch as their artistic creates are washed away by the rising tides and blowing sand.
The beach art of Andres Amador may be temporary, but the photographs and prints are dramatic and beautiful.
