Ventura Hosts Renowned Sand Artist Andres Amador

VENTURA, Calif. –  Andres Amador is a San Francisco-based artist who has been working on the beach since 2004.  Using the beach as his canvas, his artwork can span over 100,000 feet, achievable only during low tide.  Andres’s magic in the sand is created by the use of a single rake and inspired by his desire to bring a sense of wonder and immediacy to the viewer through his art.  His artworks do not last long – within minutes of finishing a piece, and often while still in progress, the returning tide begins resetting the canvas.  This provides an opportunity to reflect upon the nature of impermanence, serving as a reminder that the act of joyous creation is its own reward. more>>
