Artist: Joe Mangrum

Sidewalk Sand Paintings by Brooklyn artist Joe Mangrum

All artist Joe Mangrum uses to create these magnificent works of art are patience and his bare hands.

Mangrum was a painter who started working with sand in the Fall of 2009. He chose sand because it’s an ephemeral medium that can be swept away at the the end of the day.  The gifted street artist spends hours on end on his hands and knees sprinkling his colored sand onto the sidewalk to create ephemeral masterpieces that catch the eye of everyone around him.
