Sand Sculptor

The Gritty Art of Albert Lucio, Jr

Albert Lucio is a native son of Texas who carved his first 5 gallon bucket of sand in 2005. Interestingly, this occurred approximately one week before his very first sand competition, C-101 C-sculptures, a grueling 25 hour straight-through-the-night event. Once the competition was over Albert went home, applied ample amounts of aloe vera to his severely sunburned skin, took a long nap and welcomed a new adventure into his life. Albert has been sculpting ever since and has won several awards competing in open, solo and duo categories from amateur to advanced competitions in Texas and across the United States.

Albert believes that competitive sculpting has a zen like quality that just happens to mix in a lot of blood, sweat and tears.

When Albert is not sculpting he’s doing stuff like working at his job, mowing his lawn and showing his dog, Charlie, card tricks.
