The beach is adorned with the red bamboo signature of a local artist, Bernard Abril, in the form of a sculpture at the water’s edge of Plage Salis, here in Antibes. Using the landscape as his canvas and stalks of bamboo for his letters, he created his calligraphy for everyone to muse. He painted the bamboo red because he wanted to add ink to his script, and also because he says that red does not exist in nature. The stalks of bamboo are planted into the sand and linked together, balanced by suspended stones which are also painted red. He creates his signature sculptures in different places from time to time, and each time the calligraphy is different, drawing inspiration from each unique landscape.
