Sand Sculpture Art - Amazing, Beautiful, Stunning and Unique Sand Art


Sand Sculpture Art - Amazing, Beautiful, Stunning and Unique Sand Art


Sand art is the practice of modelling sand into an artistic form, such as a sand brushing, sand sculpture, sandpainting, or sand bottles. A sand castle is a type of sand sculpture resembling a miniature building, often a castle.

The two basic building ingredients, sand and water, are available in abundance on a sandy beach, so most sand play takes place there, or in a sandpit. Tidal beaches generally have sand that limits height and structure because of the shape of the sand grains. Good sand sculpture sand is somewhat dirty, having silt and clay that helps lock the irregular shaped sand grains together.

Sand castles are typically made by children, simply for the fun of it, but there are also sand sculpture contests for adults that involve large, complex constructions.

























































This Following amazing artwork is done by San Francisco artist Andres Amador. He usually patiently waits for a full or new moon to be sure that low tides would prepare for him a perfect “canvas” to do his work. Sadly enough, but within several hours these masterpieces are wiped out by the ocean…


















And this is another artist Jim Denevan who’s doing the same passion for art on the beach.
