Andreas Amador, a San-Francisco based landscape artist is known for his breath-taking sandscape works of art in which he etches enormous designs onto beaches. Amador makes sure to create his masterpieces on a full moon – maximizing the low tide that comes with the lunar cycle and the moonlight that illuminates his work at night. Amador uses a rake and some assistants to create the organic and geometric shapes reminiscent of the stones in a zen garden. We love how ephemeral Amador’s work is – once second it’s here in all it’s sandy gloriousness, and the next second it is being washed away by the encroaching tide. His work has been featured on the Canadian Discovery Channel (see clip above) and copies of his photographed work is available for sale in prints and postcards.
