I’m finding God in the sand paintings of Joe Castillo.
Joe has performed his unique form of artwork for audiences around the world. According to his website, joecastillo.com:
“SandStory® consists of art images created by Joe Castillo as he draws in sand with his hands on a light table. The performance is scored and choreographed to live or recorded music performed live on stage and video projected on a screen for large audiences.”
Joe began learning art techniques when he was five years old, from his artistic parents and within the international art community in Mexico. He accepted Christ as his savior at age fourteen, and according to his About page, “For the next forty years his love of art and his passion for God would inspire and guide his life.”
