Jakub Zimacek And Jan Zelinka

 

Jakub Zimacek

Current home base: Czech Republic

Jakub, born and raised in Czech Republic, started to learn how to sculpt sand at age 23 while in Spain with a friend.

After a year’s time, he reached out to a sand sculpture organizer in Portugal and got accepted. Since then he has been working with sand full time. In the past 12 years of sand sculpting, he has been traveling around the world to Europe, Australia, South America, New Zealand, and Asia.

This will be his first time sand sculpting in America.

When he is not on the job, Jakub spends his free time with his family and sculpting wood.

He lives in the northeast part of Czech in the mountains, so he enjoys winter sports and biking in summer.
