Do you remember the amazing sand drawings by Andres Amador and Jim Denevan? This time, instead of using rakes or driftwood, Swedish artist Gunilla Klingberg decided to take it to the next level by using a tractor. Gunilla attached a special star pattern made of tyre threads to a metal cylinder of the tractor that cleans Laga beach in Spain. Following the lunar and tidal calendar, the pattern is remade again and again at all possible days at low tide.

San Francisco-area based landscape artist Andres Amador creates amazing large-scale sand paintings on beaches using only a rake and some help from volunteers. We’ve already featured some Sand Drawings by Jim Denevan and Snow Paintings by Sonja Hinrichsen before, but it still amazes me how many hours are spent creating something so large yet impermanent as these beach drawings.
A surfer, and a self-taught chef Jim Denevan creates breathtaking geometric sand sculptures freehand with a length of driftwood during the period of low tide. Over the past 17 years Jim has composed hundreds of unique sand drawings at beach locations in California and around the world, however you can only see them in pictures as they last only as long as the next high tide.
