Sand Artist

Sand Artist

Peter Donnelly is an artist in Christchurch producing ephemeral works using rather basic equipment:  stick, rake and broom.  His canvas is the sand by the pier at New Brighton, Christchurch.

I think this image captures the exuberance and energy he puts into his work:

That image reminds me of the Japanese kanji character  大, Dai (= large, very appropriate!).

His personal transport is equally idiosyncratic:

Looks rather like a Harley Davidson, doesn’t it?

He does some lovely work (best viewed from helicopter) which lasts for hours (until the tide comes in).  For example, this anniversary image, or this one, his 1000th!.  Long may he continue.
