Peter Papamanolis

Country of Citzenship: Australia


Peter is a father of four, fine jewellery craftsman and part-time artist. Sand sculpting on the beach was a relaxing pastime that first ignited his sand journey. What started as a book purchase on sand sculpting quickly turned to him meeting and working with amazingly brilliant sand sculptors from all over the world for the last 12 years.

Peters experience includes a collaborative effort in carving hundreds of tonnes of sand at Rye Beach in 2007 to creating his first ten-tonne sand sculpture at the Australian Sand Sculpting Championships in 2013. Peter is a fan favourite taking our the people’s choice award in 2020 after placing in the Australian Sand Sculpting Championships last year.
