A Man Takes A Single Rake to The Beach. And When You Zoom Out And See It…

 If you live in San Francisco, California, then you may be lucky enough to come across the art of Andres Amador. He doesn’t paint or sculpt. He prefers a medium that is temporary but absolutely beautiful: a sandy beach at low tide. He uses a rake to create works of art that can be bigger than 100,000 sq. ft.

He spends hours creating these intricate masterpieces, knowing that the tide will soon come in and wash away his work forever.

For Andres, his art is “more about the process and less about the result.”

  1. I am so impressed by artists who do this ephemeral kind of art (sidewalk chalk paintings, sand castles, and the sand art in your post). Knowing that the hours they spend creating these beautiful images will be washed away by the incoming tide or a sudden downpour. Don’t think I have the constitution to be able to create something with such a short shelf-life. But I’m so glad there are people out there who are able to do it. Thanks, Ana, for a lovely post.
