Sand Artist Creates Detailed Sand Sculptures

Andoni Bastarrika is a Spanish artist who brings sand to life with his life-like sand sculptures. His creations exemplify how such a tiny fragment such as sand could be a powerful medium for artistic expression. Some of his masterpieces include sand sculptures of ferocious alligators, adorable dogs, and majestic horses.

He began sculpting with sand in 2010 and his first artwork was that of a little mermaid. This creation enabled him to realize his talent for creating sculptures using sand and he has been developing his skills and perfecting the art of sand sculpting since then.
