Temporary Sand Paintings by Joe Mangrum


Would you ever consider taking 8 hours out of your day to create a masterpiece only to be blown away in the wind a few hours later?  Apparently Joe Mangrum doesn’t mind because he’s been hitting the streets of New York, Chicago, San Francisco and other metropolitan cities.  Equipped with sacks of colored sand and a creative mind Mangrum has completed nearly 550 paintings over the last few years.    If you’re interested in the process of him creating these colorful sand masterpieces, head to the bottom of the post for the timelapse of his work.
