WATCH: This SF Artist Creates Towering Drip Sandcastles, And The Videos Are So Satisfying

These drip castles are on another level.

SF-based artist Kirk Maxson creates incredible sculptures, collages, and more. He shares everything on his Instagram and YouTube channel, where you can see portraits of famous people created from paper butterflies, hand cut brass flower gardens, and much more.

But what initially caught our eye are his drip sand castle videos, which are usually time lapses of his hours spent on local beaches creating incredible towers of sand. Maxson has created dozens and dozens of impressive castles, reaching high into the air. They’re like temporary sculptures of Barcelona’s famous Sagrada Familia, or some otherworldly palace on another planet.

According to Artspace.com, Maxson is originally from Eugene, Oregon. He moved to San Francisco in 1992 and has created a variety of public and private art installations around the Bay Area and beyond.  You can see his works for sale at Artsy.com.

Be sure to follow Maxson on Instagram to see his creations!
