Joe Mangrum is quite an amazing artist who creates ephemeral art in one day…

His medium is sand, in a huge range of colours. He creates beautiful patterns on the ground, spends all day working and if it’s windy, it is all gone in a flash!

It’s hard to appreciate all the work and effort that goes into every unique piece he creates and I certainly wouldn’t like my art to disappear almost as soon as I have finished creating it 😉

You can also watch a time-lapse video of Mangrum’s sand creation in Chicago, which took approximately eight hours to create!
