Andres Amador is a San Francisco-based artist who has been working on the beach since 2004.  Using the beach as his canvas, his artwork can span over 100,000 feet, achievable only during low tide.  Andres‘s magic in the sand is created by the use of a single rake and inspired by his desire to bring a sense of wonder and immediacy to the viewer through his art.  His artworks do not last long – within minutes of finishing a piece, and often while still in progress, the returning tide begins resetting the canvas.  This provides an opportunity to reflect upon the nature of impermanence, serving as a reminder that the act of joyous creation is its own reward.

In partnership with the City of Ventura and Pier Into the Future, Amador will be bring his vision of art on the beach to Ventura, April 17-19, 2015.  Day one is a workshop where 25 guests will be guided through the process.  The second day is a “Playa Painting Community Art Experience” event where you can bring your entire family, all ages, out the the Pier to get involved and enjoy the creative process and the third day is a piece Amador creates on the beach expanding from the Ventura Pier to Figueroa Street.  All proceeds generated will benefit Pier into the Future, a non profit organization dedicated to maintaining the ioconic Ventura Pier.  For more information and to sign up for a workshop visit Amador’s website.
