Artists turn Jersey beaches into works of art

Jersey's beaches were recently transformed into it a series of artworks at the World Beach Art Championships.

Competitors battled it out by drawing masterpieces in the sand with French artist Sam Dougados crowned champion for his design of parallel lines and concentric circles.

However, tourists didn't have long to appreciate the artworks -- the sea soon turned the beach into a blank canvas again.

"His work received critical acclaim from the many members of the public that came to watch him at work and he is an extremely talented man indeed."

Speaking of his win, Sam Dougados commented: "This award is a great honour and very much unexpected. I feel that everyone was a winner today as each piece of art was a masterpiece in its own right."
