Wind Painting by Bob Verschueren

In 1978, self-taught artist Bob Verschueren created beautiful Wind Paintings by laying down pigments like crushed charcoal and rust on the ground and letting the wind do the "painting."

Among his most ground breaking works are the Wind Paintings from the 1970s and 1980s which involved painting the landscape of empty and desolate places with the help of wind.

He “painted” these canvasses with crushed charcoal, iron oxide, chalk, terra verte, flour, yellow ochre, terre de Cassel, burnt and natural umber. Each time, after a specific material was laid out in a linear motif on the land, Verschueren would wait for the wind, a hand that sublimates the art to the materials to distribute the variously coloured pigments and materials over the land. The resulting works usually only last a few hours, whereupon the wind that created them likewise blows them away.

Atomizer, you seem to have not comprehended the artist's vision and the method with which he accomplished it. You missed the whole point;

"The resulting works usually only last a few hours, whereupon the wind that created them likewise blows them away."
