Andres Amador’s earth-scape artistry

Andres Amador’s earth-scape artistry is destroyed and then shared.

His art washes away within minutes of being completed, but there’s an enduring quality to Andres Amador’s works on sand. The joy and energy that Amador encourages is ever-present in his form of creative expression. He works in synch with the cycles of the natural world and derives inspiration from the world around him.

 

After studying environmental conservation in Ecuador with the Peace Corps, Amador switched gears to connect with the environment on a much more personal level. Amador has found a following in San Francisco, and around the world, via social media. For Amador, the most important aspect of his art is the being in the moment as he creates it. Even though the work is memorialized through photographs and videos, it only lasts a few hours at most.

 

The breath-taking designs will leave you in awe, the meticulous process Amador uses to create his art will impress you, and watching the “masterpieces in the sand” vanish with the tide will make you cringe. But for the artist, it’s all part of creating artwork that can have a ripple effect of positivity in the world.
