Joe Mangrum Sand Art

Using nothing but colored sand, his bare hands, and much patience, New York artist Joe Mangrum creates beautifully vibrant large “paintings” that are here today, gone tomorrow. Mangrum is drawn to the ephemeral nature of sand and how he can make an aesthetically pleasing work that is enjoyed by many people throughout a day and swept up in the end. For those in New York, Mangrum will be at the SOFA Art Expo this weekend.

Story Eyed Media did a great, short video profile of Mangrum, where you can see how he creates his pieces:
