The painter Paul Klee once said that “a line is a dot that went for a walk”. His combinations of cubist and surrealist style demonstrate perfectly how you can come up with striking images by simply putting paint, or ink, to paper and just follow your hand to see where it takes you. Make some of your own expressionist works with some line art illustrations to get you started on your ‘walk’.
Linear designs have become particularly popular in recent years. Thanks to artistic innovators like Kandinsky, Matisse and Bridget Riley, art and design has developed in exciting new directions - showcasing that you can create amazing and moving works of art with just a few simple lines.
