For obvious reasons, this Jonathan Bouchard bee sand sculpture took the cake at a recent competition in Montreal.
The bee depicted in Bouchard's creation is not your average, cartoonish buzzing friend. Instead, this bee is quite sinister looking, and is perhaps best described as a killer wasp. Whether it was the amazing execution of the project, or the more literal artistic representation of the creature, this sculpture by Bouchard is a winner on many levels.
As many readers can appreciate, sand is an exceptionally difficult medium to work with, and the odds of it holding up through environmental conditions are slim. It may be the temporality of sand, however, that makes this such an interesting form of expression. Mastering the approach and taking it to the next level, Jonathan Bouchard is an impressive talent with a unique edge.
