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

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.”
