A true artist everything can be used as a medium for the artworks. You may have familiar with the artists who are doing magical creations with sand. Andoni Bastarrika is an artist who crafts beautiful animals as look as the real. Instead of building a castle at the beach, he is performing an incredible skill that everyone doesn’t exhibit.
As per his memory, he started this in 2010, and the first sculpture he made was a little mermaid. “I devoted myself to developing this gift and have spent the last ten years doing just that. The sand fascinates me because no matter how you look at it, it will always teach you things if you are willing to learn, In order to create a sculpture, an unthinkable number of sand particles participate, hugging each other tightly through humidity, so that someone could model their union. And once the artist steps back, its piece will remain at the mercy of nature, meaning that sooner or later the wind will dry them up and release each particle, slowly consuming all the individuality and authenticity.” He said.
