I’m a 42 old french artist living in Biarritz, where I practice an uncommon art , by definition land art, but also what I call “beach art”, a bit compared to street art which is part of my influences.
Using a rake, I draw at low tide huge frescos on the beach.
It is a way for me to turn a usual place, naturally, to disseminate a thought, get people to look at their environment in a different way and make them ask questions.
My work is characterized a geometry and poetry that makes us stop and reflect on the magic of a moment, our relationship with nature, and the very essence of our beings.
It is also an area of expression beyond standard that few media can provide.
I actually drew in 11 countries and more than 60 different beaches.
My work is double since once the sand drawing is completed, I took shots in the different angles that gives me the cliff overlooking the beach before the tide erases all within hours. I try to capture nature’s fleeting, ephemeral beauty. create a certain atmosphere in the picture, improve the poetry and create a real second artwork.
Part of this large work is collected in a series of photos digitally printed on brushed aluminum for the specific light, produced in limited copies.
I hope you will enjoy them and find the beauty everywhere around you.
Inspired by my surrounding, here in Spain, an amazing beach also seen in Game of Throne.

Sand drawing improvised, inspired by arabic design
I improvised this geometric drawing inspired by the layers of the rocks of this beach, close to where I live
"We can't stop the waves, but we can learn to surf"!
I guess we can see many things..what do you think?
On of my last beach art in march 2019 during my trip in Morocco
