Jim Denevan

Working freehand with found materials, Jim Denevan creates massive drawings on beaches and on the Earth's surface. His preferred canvas is a wide beach at low tide, sometimes walking for 30 miles and spending as long as 7 hours on a drawing which the tide then washes away. In addition to many insanely beautiful photos, his website contains detailed notes on how he accomplishes all of his projects. Denevan is part of the current Vancouver Biennale exhibition, and will create one of the world's largest free-hand sand-drawings on the beaches of Vancouver's Spanish Banks this summer.
