Sand and Snow Art by Four Eco-Friendly Landscape Artists

What do artists Tony Plant, Jim Denevan, and  Andreas Amador have in common? They use sticks and rakes to create sand art on scenic beaches. These work are striking because of their beauty and ephemeral nature. While taking hours to make, these sand art wash away with the incoming tide.

This kind of landscape art is also environmentally friendly because very little materials are used in their crafting. These artworks have caught the eye of the public. Tony Plant's artworks have been featured in a music video, while Andreas Amore has been consigned to create wedding proposal sand art several times.

In addition to sand art, we also have artists like Sonja Hinrichsen who create snow art. Only the snow artist doesn't use a rake--only her two feet.
