“Nature is my ultimate inspiration . . . I have always been drawn to nature.” Those were the words of Andres Amador, a current San Francisco-based artist known for his large-scale works on sandy beaches. He represents the assemblage of artists who have used nature as creative inspiration.

Climate change, in turn, threatens artistic creations, both existing and future ones.
