Jamie Harkins is a talented artist and musician in Mount Maunganui, New Zealand. When he’s not making music or painting he is drawing fun optical 3D illusions in the sand with the help of his friends. Their anamorphic drawings feature ‘Escher’ like stairways, ocean scenes, skate parks, and more, and are only complete when someone poses on the beach to make the illusion real. Below we present you his new artwork, a 3D piano in the sand.
“We’ve seen other people doing stuff on beaches, but it’s always been geometric, flat shapes, like a pattern, so we thought we’d get into the whole 3D thing,” he told The New Zealand Herald. “And I kind of like the fact that it disappears at the end of the day when the tide comes in. It makes it impermanent.”
