Sentosa Sandsation: MARVEL Edition’s Creative Director JOOheng Tan with his Iron Man sand sculpture.

The towering sand sculptures at Siloso Beach are the work of internationally-acclaimed Singaporean sand artist JOOheng Tan and his team of 15 sculptors. Over 10 days, they have carved out towering tributes to the MARVEL universe with nothing more than just sand and water.

And with the sand art’s fluid lines and well-chiselled looks, it is hard to believe that the Super Hero sculptures are nothing more than compacted grains of sand. Looking at them, you’d half-expect the real Super Heroes to come bursting out at any time.

The level of detail on each of the 15 sand sculptures is nothing short of amazing.
