Andres Amador is an artist living in San Francisco California, he doesn’t sculpt or paint, instead he uses sand, a temporary medium but also stunningly beautiful. At low tide he takes a rake and creates beautiful works of art, some of these can be over 100,000 sq. ft.
Andres spends countless hours creating these elaborate masterpieces, whilst knowing it’s only a matter of time before the tide will come in and wash each piece away forever.
For Andres, his art is “more about the process and less about the result.”
He knows that it will all be temporary.
While making his beach mural explorations, he uses a rope as a guide so that he can make the geometric patterns.
When asked WHY he does it, Andre gives the best answer…
“The unanswerable question! Its fun. I get to be at the beach.”
Consider yourself lucky if you happen to stumble across one of his playa paintings, because it won’t be there long.
By raking up the wet sand at low tide, he is able to make contrasting sand colors.
He even offers his services, helping people propose.
Or even teaching others to create these beachscapes as part of a team building exercise.
According to Andres, it only takes a couple of hours once the tide is low enough to create the designs.
Andres’ creations are simply stunning and knowing that these delicate creations are temporary somehow makes them even more beautiful.
