Writer and illustrator Eunsan Huh explores the visual expression of the Korean language and the impact of images on language learning and the speakers personal development. Her design project, My Korean Childhood, explores the semantics of the Korean language in a visual, iconographic way, with the goal of sharing the beauty and imagination behind how the language is constructed.
Eunsan is based in New York, but having been born in Korea and raised in Canada, she has always lived in a multilingual environment, and appreciated the specific qualities of other languages. Check out her TED Talk on learning Icelandic, another language she is passionate about, through breaking words down into smaller components. Eunsan is also the Author of Iceland in Icons - A Pictographic Travel Guide.
The Eunsan Huh Collection is made from sustainable alternatives to polyester and other synthetic fabrics. Our production is free of toxin chemicals. Here at DSNY - it is our mission to raise awareness around the consumption of plastic based fabrics through our artist support network.
