Temporary Sand Drawings by Tony Plant

England-based artist Tony Plant has transformed the stunning beaches of England into a temporary canvases with his amazing geometric drawings in the sand. To create each drawing, Plant spends hours on the coastline, using a rake to form lines and circles in the sand. The temporary artworks do not last long, very quickly getting washed away by the waves.

“I just think of them as non-precious things. Some people get confused about why I do it, when there’s nothing left after the tide has washed everything away, but I just see it as a new blank canvas for me to work with” say the artist.
