If you live in San Francisco, California, then you may be lucky enough to come across the art of Every morning, San Francisco based artist Andres Amador does something incredible. He rakes stunning sand drawings into the beach.
But what’s sad yet beautiful about what he does is that every time he finishes one of his 100,000+ square feet works of art, it gets washed away by the tide just hours after he is finished.
But for Andres, this is just part of his art. As he philosophically puts it, his art is “more about the process and less about the result.” One look at his awe-inspiring drawings, and I think you’ll agree too.
While making his beach mural explorations, he uses a rope as a guide so that he can make the geometric patterns.
One of Andre’s techniques involve raking up wet sand at low tides, which enables him to make contrasting sand colors.
He even offers his service to those that want to propose.
The fact that Andres’ intricate creations are only temporary make them that much more special and beautiful. His art really sends a powerful message across about the briefness of life, and how we choose to spend our time.
In fact, when asked why he does it, Andres gives the best answer possible: “It’s fun. I get to be at the beach.”
