American sand artist Jim Denevan (born 1961) spends hours to create the most beautiful and probably the most impermanent drawings on the North California beaches.

A surfer and a self-taught chef creates his breathtaking geometric sand art freehand with a length of driftwood during the period of low tide.

Over the past 17 years, Jim has composed hundreds of unique artworks at beach locations in California and around the world, however, you can only see the beautiful drawings as they last only as long as the next high tide.

So, if you ever wonder what to do with your spare time on the beach – just find a good stick, a patch of pristine beach sand, and you’re set.
