'BRING YOUR STORY TO LIFE'
Attention: Event Organisers and Storytellers
ENTER THE SANDMAN
'I help event organisers and storytellers share their story so they can mesmerise and engage THEIR AUDIENCE'
TURN YOUR STORY INTO ART
When it comes to entertainment it can be challenging to find acts that can relate to your audience. Presenting information in these modern times – needs to not only inform – it needs to educate, inspire and entertain- which is easier said than done.
The Sandman- Marcus Winter, can create a customised sand art for your event or presentation. Using light, sand and sound – and like a magician – images reveal themselves in sand – to create engaging artistic experiences so you can mesmerise your audience with your message.
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
Over the past decade of work, Marcus Winter and his “Sand Art” has become established as a rising success story within the cultural and artistic landscape of Aotearoa.
A finalist in the arts category for the 2013 Nga Toa Whakaihuwaka (Maori of the Year Awards) and recipient of an ART Venture award in 2015, Winter’s work has achieved both critical and commercial success with placements in major advertising campaigns and events across the Pacific.
Winter’s artistic passion stems from his culture, country and desire to promote and preserve Te Ao Maori on an international scale. A largely self-taught artist, Winter has proved his adeptness across a range of mediums with his sand animations requiring a rare skill-set involving AV production, editing and script-writing.

THE NEXT STEPS
DO YOU HAVE A STORY?
Stories can help us to connect better to people – to teach, inspire, inform and entertain. Art can have broad appeal, and can help bring people together. I enjoy the challenge of taking abstract ideas and forming a ‘moving’ story in sand.
I’d love to help create a unique experience for your next event or project!
