BUSAN SAND FESTIVAL 2015
This weekend (29th May) sees the start of the Busan Sand Festival at Haeundae beach. The theme for this years festival is children’s stories (fairy tales) and there are some really excellent sculptures to greet the visitors.
For the last week I strolled along the beach to chat to the artists and see the progress they are making.
The first note, is that they are all professional sculptors and travel the world producing their art for all to see.
The sculptors come from Holland, Mexico, Korea, Italy, USA and Canada. To many of us, and I was one until this week, it just seemed that carving shapes in the sand was all that there was to this art form, but how wrong could we be! – I cannot even get a kiddies bucket of sand to stand up.
