Rumble / Time LapsesHave you ever heard of the world’s first and most famous "Snow Artist"? Enjoy this opportunity to meet the breathtaking artist Simon Beck. Driven by super-human forces and undaunted by the powers of nature, he trudges across sand or through knee-high snow to create massive geometric drawings. Simon Beck produces about 30 snow drawings every winter in the northern hemisphere, mostly in the Alps. He started 10 years ago doing it for fun and now it is his main occupation. ‘When you have a blank piece of paper you draw on it,’ he says. ‘So drawing on a blank snowfall seemed like a natural thing to do.’

In this video, we have the amazing chance to see his talent in which he shares this time lapse with us that is sure to blow your mind. He creates a phenomenal drawing in the snow using a gigantic piece of land. That's so amazing! He makes his drawings using only a compass and by counting paces. Simon wears snowshoes, and by running in them makes a path. He cannot step outside the path since this will disturb the fresh snow. What an incredible talent! He loves doing mathematical shapes and he has favorite shapes too. His favorite are: Koch snowflake, Sierpinski triangle and Mandelbrot set.

Beck takes pictures of all his artworks and earns his living by selling high-resolution copies of the photographs. We salute you Mr. Beck because you made something so simple and turned it into a sophisticated and amazing art!
