Spanish painter Borja Gonzalez will work with his band to perform Dreams of Sand, a show that combines sand art, live music, big-sized puppets and "speed painting" in Beijing.[Photo provided to China Daily]

"To be a good sand artist, you not only have to know how to draw, but you also need a circus artist's skills," he says.

It took Gonzalez a long tine to draw, create puppets and rehearse with the musicians for the show.

"I try to understand sand as if it is my mind," says Gonzalez. "It first seemed difficult to do drawings with sand, but that did not scare me. In fact, my reaction was quite the opposite. I was excited and I worked with passion."
