Former engineer Simon Beck is widely-known for creating intricate geometrical designs using just a pair of snowshoes, a map drawing and a compass. Back in 2015, the Canadian artist created one of his large-sized drawings portraying a snowflake at the Peyto Lake in Alberta. It took him over six hours to create, stomping out the design that measured approximately 450 meters.

“Usually I work outwards from the center,” he explained on his Facebook page. “Straight lines are made by using the compass and walking in a straight line towards a point in the distance, curves are made by judgment. Both require a lot of practice to get it good.”

Beck recently unveiled his latest snow artworks under his #ProjectSnow series, check them out above.

Elsewhere in art, LA-based artist Sean Kush will showcase new politically-charged paintings in an exhibition at Superchief Gallery Los Angeles.
