I remember when I was younger I envied many of my classmates who are good at drawing and sketching. I tried to learn but, alas, the artistic neuron in my brain doesn’t travel down my hand.
While most of us are happy to be able to sketch on a piece of paper or a fresh canvas on an easel, this guy uses sandy beaches as his canvas. Talk about achieving, right?
Meet Tim Hoekstra. He’s a dutch artist who I think is a modern day Picasso on the beach. His beach arts are epicly brilliant. See for yourself!
Tim has been doing art since he was a child. He’s into what he calls ‘temporary art’ because it’s much like everything else in life.
He’s always found things in the beach to use to draw on sand and six years ago, he decided to make his beach art even larger by using a rake.
Thank God for the advance technology now and the improvement with photography. Because his beach drawings are all on such a large-scale canvas, he used to take aerial photos by mounting a GoPro on a kite.
Tim uses a drone now. And as you can see on his beach drawings, he’s very much into geometric patterns and street art. He also mentioned being inspired by tattoo artists.
According to Tim, every art work takes about 4 hours to complete. Then, the waves washes it away when the tide comes in.
He only wishes that those who see his work up close would see how much passion, energy and effort he puts in his work.
We sure do, Tim. And, we’re hoping to see more on your social media pages!
