This Artist Uses The Beach As His Canvas

If you've ever been to the beach, you've likely drawn your name in the sand... maybe followed by a "<3's Anthony." (No judgement.) Sand artist Jim Denevan takes this idea to the next level. He left surfing and his job as a chef to create magnificent works of art in the sand. Denevan has been traveling the world and practicing his sand craft for 20 years. Learn about his "in the moment" process in the following video.
