Snow Drawings by Sonja Hinrichsen

February 22nd, 2012 by Lina | No Comments | Filed in Design

This beautiful large-scale Snow Drawing piece was created by San Francisco-based artist Sonja Hinrichsen with the help of generous assistance of 5 volunteers on Rabbit Ears Pass, Colorado. Her work is like a snow version of Amazing Sand Drawings on California Beaches by Jim Denevan we’ve featured last year.

It’s amazing how many hours were spent creating something so big yet impermanent as these drawings. “I’m not so into making art that lasts,” Hinrichsen told Steamboat Today. “The world is saturated with manmade projects. I don’t think I need to add more things to the planet.”

On the other hand, Sonja’s work is not as impermanent as it seems. Eventually the snow will melt, but the pictures are here to stay.

  • About us

    It was in the back corner of McDonalds with a couple of hours to wait for a train home to Norwich, that theDot first came together. Freshly inspired by a weekend at the 4designers conference in London and having traipsed around museums and exhibitions all day, three minds came together over chicken burgers and chips.

    The three are currently studying Graphic Communication at Norwich University College of the Arts, where they delve into advertising, corporate branding, design for publishing, photography, illustration and so on. All confident in their skills, but continuing on their learning journey.

    We are a new design group hoping to achieve great things
