Sand is everywhere! In the desert, at the sea, in your shoes and lately, even in art galleries. And if it’s not everywhere, it’ll get everywhere. Remember that Animal Planet once had this type of sand painting advertising? Well, the concept of sand painting wasn’t made to be advertising, but a manifestation of artistic spirit.

Remember when you were children and you used to build sandcastles or bury you feet in sand. The feeling of dipping you fingers and toes in it was extraordinary. Some people liked it so much that they wanted to feel it again and again. So they devoted some of their time to sand painting.
