“... exciting concept of visual art in landscape – different from Goldsworthy because it has people in landscape but still captures the temporal nature of things."

London Based Artist Evewright over the last eight years he has been developing the Walking Drawings project, which is a series of live experimental art installations involving the public. Evewright creates large-scale drawings on the sandscapes along the British coastline, which are then brought to life when the public and now Cumbria Heavy Horses, are asked to participate by walking the lines of his design. His most recent installation took place in Cumbria in September 2010 and was captured on high definition film with photography.

There was extensive media coverage, first on BBC Radio Cumbria and BBC NorthWest Tonight then the Metro newspaper, who decribed Evewright’s work as 'Art by Sand Banksy'. To round off the week, Walking Drawings featured in BBC Newsbeat's 'Oddbox' as well as receiving extensive local newspaper coverage.

Thanks to all involved for enabling Evewright Studio to make this happen - our funders, The Big Lottery, Lancaster and Lancashire Councils, partners, SAKS Media, co-producers, Neath Films, the walkers, Cumbrian Heavy Horses (horses and riders), More Music, Cedric Robinson, poet Ebele Ajogbe and Morecambe Bay Partnership.
