Amazing Hand Poured Sand Paintings by Joe Mangrum

Joe Mangrum’s work explores issues of the urban grid, environmentalism and its effects on the collective psyche. Since 2009, he has created a series of over 900 intricate sand paintings in public and private spaces which act as vibrant catalysts of social interaction in new York city and around the world. Inspired by ancient traditions and synced up with a rhythm of animation, forms are mixed with an urban free-style and combined with bright “pop art” colors, fractal variations and circuitry.

His paintings are influenced by an abundant world of undersea creatures, carnivorous plants emanating electrical impulses, a living mathematical amalgam and botanical geometry stemming cross-cultural metaphors from years of travel.
