Greg Lebon Shows LA Times Man What It Takes to be One of the Best Sand Sculptors in the Country

Greg Lebon, one of the best sand sculptors in the country,  was featured by Chris Erkine of LA Times. In his article “Man About Time: The Sand Sorcerer’s Apprentice,”  Chris said that “what Michaelangelo is to marble, Lebon is to sand” and described him as one of the best in the business.

As Greg and Chris work on their sand creation, Greg illustrated his talent using a few of his well-worn sand sculpture tools to create something out damp sand. He has been into sand sculpting for thirty years, won in many competitions, and traveled to different parts of the world because of his sand sculpting skills.
Greg, a founding member of Archisand, has given numerous contributions and honor to the sand sculpting community. For the last seven out of ten years, Archisand has taken won first place in the Masters Ten-Man Division in the U.S. Open Sand Sculpture event held yearly at Imperial Beach, California. Aside from winning sand sculpting competitions, Greg and his team of sand sculpting artists have traveled to Japan, Canada, Mexico, and many places in the U.S. because of sand sculpture.
Aside from all his sand sculpting work and competitions, Greg does volunteer work for church and other agencies. As Erkine said, Greg is talented, nice, and patient. Greg may be one of the busiest sand sculpture artists,  but he also practices architecture in the State of California. You can see how his architectural skills complement his sand sculpting.

LA Kings Fans Loved The Win & Our Logo & Players Custom Sand Sculpture!

Last night Dwight King scored the tiebreaking goal early in the third period, Jonathan Quick made 18 saves, and the Los Angeles Kings rolled to the brink of their first Stanley Cup final in 19 years with a 2-1 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes.

AND…

7 Archisand sand sculptors took 2 days and turned 25 tons of sand into a 12′ tall sand sculpture of the LA Kings logo, jerseys, numbers, and even goalie, Jonathan Quick!

Fans celebrated around the final sculpture after the finishing touches went on last night at the first home game for the Kings this series.

If you missed the excitement, check out the images of the Stanley Cup & LA Kings sand sculpture below…
