Amazing Sand Sculptures by Toshihiko Hosaka

Published Jun 12, 2017

Japanese artist Toshihiko Hosaka uses beaches as his canvas to create incredibly detailed sculptures.

“His work defies what we typically think of as sand art as he sculpts and carves the loose, granular substance as if it were some malleable form of clay.

There is no core, mold or adhesive ever used throughout the process: just sand. The only trick Hosaka uses (and this is commonly accepted) is a hardening spray applied to his sculpture only after it’s been completed, in order to prevent wind and sun from eroding it for a few days.”
