Evewright's Walking Drawings on show at Royal Academy

Everton Wright's Walking Drawings: Cumbrian Heavy Horses, was created on Silecroft Beach, Millom, during 2010. It features 15 local Shire horses. Over two days, the artist, known as Evewright, battled gale force winds to create two short films and a series of large-scale prints. One print image, has been chosen for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

The still image has been selected from more than 11,000 entries this year for one of the coveted spaces at the Royal Academy. It will go on display in the Jeanne Kahn Gallery Five

Evewright once worked as a kitchen Porter at the Royal Academy, so to have his picture exhibited has been a dream come true. He said: "Walking Drawings combines the elements - sand, sea, air - to create a new way of making, seeing and experiencing drawing. "Showing this work in London locates this artistic landscape idea in the city."

Many street art installations tend to be temporary, vulnerable to the whims of the public domain whose upkeep often involves whitewashing the walls that were the artists' canvases. But one artist, London-based Evewright, is taking the ephemeral nature of public art even farther. He's turned to the beach as his canvas, creating giant swirling designs on the wave-engulfed sands of the British coastline.

It's Fun scrawling your name in the sand- so imagine the joy of getting 50 volunteers and a pack of Horses to carve your 800m (2,600ft) design on to a vast stretch. It took artist Evewright 18 months to plan it but he has certainly made his mark, even if it was for only five hours before the tide came in. 'I thought this would be a good new way to experience a drawing - not just to look at it but actually walk and live it,' said the award-winning painter from Dulwich, south-east London. | Metro

Walking Drawings: across the Estuaries by Emma Mcfarnon

A team of horses and an old-fashioned tractor might not be the standard tools of an artist, but they are fundamental to Evewright, who uses the British coastline as his canvas. The London-based artist creates large-scale drawings in the sand and asks members of the public to walk the lines. His latest assistants, a Cumbrian riding school and their 15 Shire horses, battled gale force winds to bring the drawings to life.

Walking Drawings on sand art by Evewright
over the last eight years, london-based artist evewright, has been developing 'walking drawings'. the project is a series of live experimental installations created with community participation on sandscapes along the british coastline. There are three pieces that make up the composition, the final two were brought to life over 2 days and captured on film. The first day saw evewright recruit dozens of shire horses and their riders to follow a path outlined by the artst, even in the midst of 60mph gale winds. the second day, groups of blue-jacketed walkers from lancaster, cumbria and london sauntered the artistic trail.

Exhibition: Walking Drawings - Across the Estuaries, The Brewery, Kendal,
until March 13 2011

Antony Gormley’s eerie sculptural figures on Crosby beach aren’t the only artworks making a splash across the beaches of the North West.

At the Brewery’s Sugar Store Gallery in Kendal, a photographic exhibition chronicles the rather more ephemeral artwork of Everton Wright, aka Evewright, whose Walking Drawings were created by walking and ploughing across the region’s beaches.

Taking place over two days in September 2010, a procession of majestic Shire horses and Cumbrian Heavy Horses tramped across the seashore in a 60mph gale. On the second day groups of walkers in matching cagoules walked his drawings whilst bathed in the golden glow of early autumn sunshine.
