Jim Denevan

Ever wanted to do something big? I mean REALLY BIG!!! Chef and Artist Jim Denevan creates freehand drawings in the sand, often with nothing more than a found stick and a rake. His monumental drawings are temporary, created in areas which will soon be reshaped by wind or water.

The video above shows Jim’s 2009 land drawing in Nevada, captured by filmmaker Peter Hinson. According to Hinson “What really strikes me is that you can’t see anything from the ground. I had no idea what the piece looked like until we were aerial! Jim is good at what he does.”
