24 Beach Art Installations

From Sprawling Sand Art to Nightmarish Sandcastles

— August 4, 2014 — Eco
These amazing beach art installations make use of the sand and sea, turning shores into canvases and living art galleries. One of the easiest ways for anyone to create their own sand art is by bring a few buckets to the beach to form a sandcastle. But instead of going for the ordinary, these sandcastles go for real castle-like forms that are larger than life and hyper-realistic.

The sand itself also makes for a pretty great place to make 2D paintings, especially since these can be created to look 3D with the use of illusion. One of the best things about beach art is that it doesn't require a lot of additional supplies, since nature provides most of them, and after it's been appreciated, it can simply go back to being a part of the natural landscape.
