Klaus Bosch (aka The Sandman) has been making his interactive KB Collection Sand Art in Lustenau, Austria since 1988. When Sandman was a younger man searching for his way in life, a friend of his gave him one of the original versions of sand art available in the '80s. He was captivated as his mind tried to wrap around the beauty of the art and why it did what it did. Fascinated, he decided to try to make one for himself. trial after trial, failure after failure, he finally created a sand picture he could sell in 1988. Yes, 6 years of experimentation finally resulted in what you see today as the KB Collection sand art. Klaus is always thinking of ways to defy gravity with his sand art.
The original, classic sandblend is what you see in the Deep Sea Pacific and a few others models.
Sandman's sand art has been in the display windows (worldwide) of Louis Vuitton and Nordstroms. He has been commissioned to make special gifts for Kings, Sultans, and famous dignitaries. His art can be found in hotels, spas and businesses around the globe.
From Sandman: "My sand art is spiritual, it contains a lot of questions and indicates answers at the same time. It involves the beauty of what art once was while trying to give answers to our spirit and our inner calm."
"Don't try to understand my art with your mind. Feel it with your hear and use your imagination."
