SAND PAINTINGS


Every artist likes their canvas at a particular size; they have a comfort level with small, medium, large and even building-sized canvases for street artists. But what happens when the artist takes their art to the world, literally! Landscape artist Andreas Amador uses a canvas that exceeds football fields in terms of size. He uses beaches, or rather than sand on the beach as his medium. His extremely large drawings and pictures feature patterns that you might easily find in a much smaller zen garden. His patterns and shapes are both geometric and organic, sometimes using the topical landscape to help him sculpt his art. While his landscape art is impressive and beautiful it is also fleeting. Rarely does his work last more than a few hours and wind and tide erase his artwork and leave him a bland canvas for his next seaside artwork.

This landscape art by Andres Amador is beautiful and inspiring to see, but I wonder how his art would hold up on a black sand beach, I bet fairly well.
