Enviromental artist Tony Plant, armed with nothing more than a garden rake, "transforms the breathtakingly scenic beaches of England into temporary canvases for his swirling sand drawings.".

Tony Plant is an Artist like no other. What you see here is just a small cherry on a cake to the Artwork Tony has done over the years. It was during the making of this film i realised the depth to Tonys Artistic talents as he explained to me that in one of the shots there was a pole he had painted red over 6 years ago. He saw the Pole was rotting and the texture of the dyeing grain represented the veins of life decaying away. By painting them Red the Veins stood out. It would only be the Passer by with open Eyes and mind that would see the Pole and see its future within its surroundings....The intention wasn't to Look at the pole. But to stop, and see the beauty we are surrounded by.... Shot in the beautiful setting of Park Head, Near Bedruthen steps on the north coast of Cornwall. A winters day was spent following Tony Plant and capturing one of his amazing Beach Drawings for this music video of Ruarri Joseph's 'Till The Luck Runs Dry'.
