Have you ever heard of pieces of art made of snow?

And I am not talking about the cute snow man that is chilling in your backyards, what I am referring to here is art compositions made by the world famous artist Simon Beck.

These fascinating creations are a result of hours of walking with snowshoes. Indeed, Simon Beck realised these art compositions step by step, taking the right measurements and letting his creativity run free.

What is fascinating about this, it is not just the original idea of making something out snow, but also the way he created his art pieces: usually artists that use snow, as material for their compositions, make statues, but not many, if not any, thought of realising a living “painting” like Simon Beck’s.
