Artist produces another spectacular drawing on Brean beach

PROLIFIC sand and snow artist Simon Beck has been at it again … this time creating a huge drawing of the band Sparks on the beach at Brean.

The 62-year-old from Taunton drew brothers Ron and Russell Mael to mark the release of a new documentary about the Californian art pop duo.

Beck created the geometrical designs using a rake and a magnetic compass, and hopes the work will draw attention to the release of The Sparks Brothers, directed by Somerset’s Edgar Wright.

Wright grew up in Wells and used the town as the location of his comedy action film, Hot Fuzz.

His latest film explores the career of the hugely influential band who first came to prominence in the UK in 1974 with the hit single This Town Ain’t Big Enough For Both Of Us and who have now released 25 genre-defying albums in their extraordinary 50 year career.
