Andres Amador is no ordinary artist. He actually prefers a rake over a pencil or a paintbrush. He doesn’t shape clay or use a typical white canvas. His canvas is nature, specifically the beach. Andres creates artworks that are larger than 100,000 square feet. He spends hours upon hours perfecting these creations knowing that nature will soon wash them away. That has to be frustrating as an artist. Knowing that something you just put your heart and soul into will be washed away and no trace of it will remain. Even with this knowledge, Andres continues to put his love and devotion into creating memorable pieces of beach art.
The man himself, Andres Amador.
With the use of a rake, Andres creates a contrast by stirring up wet sand.
Andres even helps people propose.
He creates very intricate designs.
Sometimes, they are perfectly geometric.
Other times, loosely organic.
I wouldn’t even want to walk on the beach for fear of messing up one of these beautiful pieces of beach art.
I love the uniformity this one has.
His designs create random beauty in the natural.
This piece of beach art reminds me of a crop circle.
This looks like a whole bunch of earth worms crawling through the sand.

These works of beach art are utterly incredible. I had never seen beach art before I looked at Andres’s work, and I have to say this beach art is absolutely stunning. It must take an incredibly deft and skilled hand to turn ordinary sand into something as beautiful as this. I really hope I get to see a piece of his work in person someday.
