Frequently Asked Questions

What is sand art or animation?

Sand animation is the mesmerising art of telling stories through the manipulation of sand. A highly impressive performance art, sand artists create a series of images by applying sand to a surface and then drawing lines and figures in the sand with their hands and fingers. 

Often using an overhead projector or lightbox, sand is moved on a backlit or frontlit piece of glass to create each frame of an animated film. 

Our artists can create bespoke stories or perform existing routines featuring any number of characters, animals, places and themes from sand to dramatic music. 

Can I hire Kseniya Simonova from Ukraine’s Got Talent and America’s Got Talent: The Champions?

You can! Kseniya Simonova is an award-winning Sand Artist and winner of Ukraine's Got Talent who also came third place in America’s Got Talent: The Champions. Her sand stories are an internet phenomenon with views of over 20 million.

Using a giant light box, dramatic music, imagination and sand painting skills, Kseniya has performed at events across the world for audiences including Presidents, members of the British Royal Family, the King of Jordan and at many high profile corporate events and weddings.

Kseniya is available to book through us for international events. 

How long is a sand art performance?

We recommend a performance of between 5-15 mins if you’re looking for a stage show. This gives the artist long enough to tell a story, but short enough to engage guests’ attention and deliver high impact. 

The same story performed on a loop is a good solution if you’re after background entertainment. Depending on the sand artist and your event needs, we will work with you to decide how long the sand animation should be performed for. 

Alternatively, a recording can be played for as long as you like! This may be the same sand story on repeat, or a series of different sand animations. As this is a recording it won’t be performed live.

I have a small budget, can I afford a sand artist?

It may be harder to get a live sand animation performance with a small budget, but consider a recording as this removes costs such as travel, accommodation and travel time. A recording is highly flexible as it can be played on large screens at events as well as being used for social media channels, internal comms, marketing campaigns and more!

Do you offer custom sand stories that include company logos and product reveals?

We do! Due to its highly flexible nature, sand animation is perfect for events where you’d like the entertainment to feature branding in a high-impact way. Many of our sand artists are more than happy to tailor their shows to include logos or come up with an entirely unique concept just for you! This is perfect if you’re looking to launch a new product, illustrate how a new concept or product might work, tell the story of a company’s history, how a couple met at a wedding and so much more!
