Evewright’s sand drawings are somewhat similar to those produced by Andres Amador in the San Francisco Bay Area, which we’ve featured before on Inhabitat. According to Evewright’s website, the large-scale drawings take place on stretches of coastline that are typically about a quarter of a mile in length. “People of different ages, genders and cultures all dressed in black are then led onto the drawing and invited to walk its lines in various formats and patterns,” explains the artist’s statement.

Evewright sees deeper meaning in the drawings than just pretty pictures. ”The drawings are a conduit for bigger happenings which cannot be controlled or repeated but which are inherently beautiful,” he recently told the The Independent. The entire artistic process was captured in video and photographs, and Evewright produced three short videos showing people and horses walking in single-file, tracing lines on the beach.
