Since we last checked in with artist Andres Amador, he’s been busy creating more beautiful sand paintings all over the world including San Francisco, Bermuda and Mexico. He continues to make blank areas of the beach his canvas, as he uses only a rake to create each mesmerizing work.
Recently James Yager of PBS shot a short film about the artist called Voyager’s Heart. (See below.) It’s inspiring to see his passion and love for his work come through. “I draw inspiration from patterns in nature,” he says in the video. “I feel connected to the elements when I’m here, the tides, the cycles of nature in a way that I never have before. I get to be outside, in the fresh air, at the beach, barefoot in the sand, I feel like I’m partaking in an ancient tradition.
“I love that the water will take it away. I get to clear my mind of it, and move on to the next thing, but the whole time I’ve been filled with joy.”
His next large scale beach artwork will be made at Stinson Beach in California on May 18.
