Joe Castillo is a unique storyteller who draws large, fluid illustrations in sand on a light table. His live performances are choreographed to music and projected with video cameras onto a large screen. He has inspired millions of people through his “Sand Animation” and introduced many to this new art form. In mid-September 2012, Castillo reached the finals for the NBC reality show, America’s Got Talent.
