This artist uses volcanic sand and a light box to create/perform a series of illustrations that flow so effortlessly, they appear to be animated.

“Sand show” artist Kseniya Simonova is from a small town on the Crimean Peninsula in Southern Ukraine. Academically trained as a professional artist, Simonova has been an illustrator practically all her life, but it wasn’t until she auditioned for a new reality show that her career really took off.

In 2009, Simonova became the very first winner of Ukraine’s Got Talent, where she wowed the judges and the nation with her captivating story-telling and technique. Since then, she has gone on to perform all over the world and become a generous philanthropist.

You can see an example of her work in the video below or find more of her performances on her website.
