Beach art reaches new scale

Beach art reaches new scale

When it comes to drawing massive and symmetrical circular formations, crop circles have been a constant source of intrigue. But Jim Denevan’s sand creations offer some spectacular competition, producing works of art that range from small to the size of an entire beach, even if they are only temporary.   

With a rake in hand and a simple piece of driftwood, the chef/surfer/artist from Santa Cruz, California, creates freehand marks on sand and has recently taken to creating works of art on frozen lakes.   

Photographs of Denevan’s work have featured in magazines all over the world and are also housed in the New York Museum of Modern Art
