Artist converts beach rock into a great white shark

Artist converts beach rock into a great white shark #art #nature #creativity

When mixed media artist Jimmy Swift traveled to India in March 2015, he saw a jagged rock on the beach. He immediately knew what to do with it.

“When I first saw this rock it looked like a perfect place for a great white. It’s truly amazing how mother nature can carve out such a perfect shape.”

But creating a three-dimensional lifelike shark wasn’t easy. He braved an ocean of buffeting waves to get the first draft done. “This was the hardest thing I’ve ever painted. I was literally beat up by the waves and rising tide and forced to stop before it was finished.”

He returned two years later to repaint it for Instagram-obsessed beachgoers.
