kindergarten snails

We watched a short Art:21 interview with Korean artist Doh Ho Suh who described the feeling of missing his home (watch the video here).







He said that he wished he could pack up his home and take it with him wherever he traveled just like a snail. The kinderartists shared their stories about missing home and then imagined what kind of homes their own snails would carry.




The use of line and special use of color give these imaginative drawings a strong sense of design.

The use of line is amazing.
The red color against the black lines, is genius
