Andres Amador is an artist who lives in San Francisco, California. He is a unique artist in that his medium is beach sand! He uses a rake to create works of art sometimes bigger than 100,000 sq. ft. He has spent hours creating these intricate masterpieces, all the while knowing that the tide will soon wash away his work forever.
Andres says his art is “more about the process and less about the result.”
He is well aware of the fact that his art is temporary.
He uses a rope as a guide while making his beach mural explorations.
He even offers his services, helping people propose.
When Andres was asked “Why?” he does this…”The unanswerable question! It’s fun. I get to be at the beach.”
The next time you are in San Francisco, try to see one of his paintings because it won’t be there very long.
When he rakes up the wet sand at low tide, he is able to make contrasting sand colors.
He even teaches others how to create these beachscapes as part of a team building exercise.
Andres said it only takes him a couple of hours once the tide is low enough to create the designs.
Andres’ creations are stunning. Knowing that these delicate creations are temporary somehow makes them even more beautiful.
