Andres Amador’s Beach Art

enhanced-19697-1391095230-3

A self-proclaimed, “Earthscape Artist,” Andres Amador creates complex geometric configurations on sandy beaches all over the world.

A California native, Amador was inspired to start creating his art while studying crop circles and sacred geometry during a Hawaiian vacation in 2004. Using a rake and a remote controlled aerial camera, his pieces range from origami to Mexican prehistoric art.

What makes his work so meaningful is its impermanence. He labors for hours only to have the ocean wipe his canvas clean with each tide (similar to another, previously featured artist).

Amador explains, “Prior to this art form I was doing large sculptural installations. I still have a garage full of my art. I can’t let it go! With the beach, I have no choice, which is refreshing.”
