New York based sand artist Calvin Seibert has been sculpting sand for the last 30 years, but his love affair started much much earlier when he was still a child. Young Calvin would spend time around construction sites playing with the huge pile of sand dumped there. When he was growing up, he thought he would become an architect, but he found himself drawn more towards the abstractness of the foundations and the initial framing then in the completed structures themselves. He became interested in Brutalism. “Looking at architecture magazines as a child and seeing hotels in French ski resorts made of concrete suited my sensibility, I was hooked,” Seibert recalls.
