3D sand art, done by 3 Idiots in Balochistan.


A city, Pasni, Balochistan, that adjusted itself in NEWS Headlines, for 3D art – something that has garnered a lot of attention lately.

Pasni, Balochistan

Pasni, a medium sized city and majorly famous for its fishing port in Gwadar District, Balochistan, Pakistan. The topography of the area is marked by low jagged hills of the Makran Coastal Range, while flat land is more common towards the coast. Jabal Zarain is a small hill astride a promontory (Cape or Ras Jaddi) south of Pasni and marks the highest point (416′ ASL) in the area.

Artwork of three friends, Hussain Zeb, Zubair Mukhtar, and Bahar Ali Gauhar, left people mesmerised in the coastal city of Pasni where their 3D art is on display on the seaside.

A video showing the friends walk around their art with one pretending to be slipping down a rooftop while another sitting next to a human-size bottle has made recently made rounds as well. The 3D art includes houses with sloping rooftops, doors and bottles drawn in sand leaving the viewer optically confused.

Their art really needs a big round of applause, because they were not an artist by profession, as they did use ordinary sticks, these 3D artworks are one of a kind. “It took us 3 hours to draw these 3D sketches on sand”, according to Baloch boys.

A place is known for surfing but it seems like tourists have come with a different purpose – its artwork, at Matakana Island in New Zealand

The New Zealander was inspired by 3D street art and decided to take the concept to the beach on the country’s North Island.

Harkins says the practice requires few materials and has the added bonus of having very large natural ‘canvases’ close at hand.

The artists regularly venture down to the same beach between Mt Maunganui and Matakana Island to experiment in the sand.

Designs have included skate ramps, circus scenes, surrealist landscapes – and even a toaster.

The group’s biography states: ‘The artworks provide an acute awareness of time and acts as a metaphor for the brevity of life.

‘As the tide rises and covers the work it is permanently erased from the beach making the art experience transitory unlike pictures hanging in a gallery for a period of time.

‘The works impermanence is also symbolic of many other aspects of daily life.’
