Beautiful Land Art by Sylvain Meyer

 

Swiss artist Sylvain Meyer creates incredible works of temporary land art using only found materials in nature. From fallen bark, to acorns, leaves and decaying wood, Meyer immortalizes his work though photography.

Sylvain creates both patterns and creatures in his artwork, even delving into anamorphic art using Ying & Yang symbols. The ‘canvas’ for some of his pieces can also be quite breathtaking, especially his pieces with dramatic landscapes like Mont Blanc in the background, or the one on the edge of a cliff.

You cann see the complete gallery of Sylvain Meyer’s work in a 26-photo Flickr album. Below is a collection of my personal favourites. Enjoy!
