Artist Uses a Rake to Create Amazingly Large Sand Paintings


Artist Andres Amador takes unconventional art to a whole other level with his incredible sand paintings. Using the beach as his enormous canvas and rakes as his brushes, Amador creates massive, eye-catching murals featuring geometric and floral patterns. The sand artist uses his whole body to navigate his tools across the grains, transforming his chosen coastline into one of his giant Earthscape paintings.

Amador says, “My work metaphorically explores the fundamental ways that humans experience reality through patterns: patterns of energy, patterns of light, patterns of form. Patterns take on tremendous significance- culturally through the use of symbols that denote advanced concepts, materially through the application of pattern awareness (as in architecture), and personally/emotionally through the perception of patterns of life and within one’s own life.”

Be sure to check out the video, below, to see Amador create one of his beautiful Earthscapes and take about his work.
