Blog: Mind Blowing Beach Art by Andres Amador!

Andres Amador (0)Andreas Amador, 40, is a landscape artist based out of San Fransisco, who is famous for his sand drawings  on beaches which he calls “Earthscape”. He doesn’t paint or sculpt. He prefers a medium that is temporary: a sandy beach at low tide. He uses a rake to create works of art that can be bigger than 100,000 sq. ft. with several helpers. The geometric and organic shapes that he creates, are slowly carved into the sand. The artist wakes up before the sun rises and before high tide, when the damp, sandy beach is still exposed. Usually within two hours, his piece is complete, and in a matter of hours, it’s washed away. Huge paintings exist just for only a few minutes, but long enough to take a few photographs before being completely engulfed by the encroaching tide. The artist has also collaborated on a number of killer marriage proposals, the question popped as part of his elaborate drawings viewable from an elevated distance.
