Pure Art is among events of West Midlands region to welcome the visit by Queen Elizabeth II on the occasion of her 60th anniversary on the throne.
Vietnamese artist Thuy Van has created a large-sized sand portrait of the queen, 1.25x0.9m, based on the original oil painting “Elizabeth II” by Leonard Boden, for this event.
The artist used 10 colors of sand, 8 of them are natural colors. Only two are artificial colors, in order to make the color of the queen’s royal robe to look natural. The portrait was completed after two months, weighing up to 160 kilos.
Enframed sand paintings appeared in Vietnam over ten years ago. This is the first time this unique art is being introduced in the UK. The event attracted the attention of some famous people in the UK.
