Artist Jamie Harkins lives in Mount Maunganui, New Zealand, where he tries to constantly push his own boundaries creating art for himself and others. While his gallery presents some very good paintings, our interest today is with his unique sand art that makes special usage in 3D effects. At first, it’s only eye catching.
But there’s more. Looking at such sophisticated art created in sand, one can only think about the following day… What happens when the rain comes? Or the wind? Or even a simple wave washing away the entire creation. It reminds me of an old Chinese tradition of writing with a water brush, knowing that it will all dry and disappear soon. It opens both eyes and mind to think about how temporary everything is, us included.
This story is about to go viral for sure. There’s something about it that causes people to share the photos. And the secret is… unknown, actually. But people do share on and on. What about you?
