This is just a sprinkling of what you can find in Hongdae, near Hongik University, as far as the street art goes. But, good god, it was a fantastic day to be there last Wednesday during the Lunar New Year! Very little in the way of “crowds” and most of the stores were still open. We had to hunt for a restaurant because many were closed but we got lucky on that end as well. I really just wanted to be out in the sun, taking pictures of all things colorful and spray paint filled.
There is some real talent in those cans.
And there is a lot more to take in, so head down there in the morning sometime before the waves of people buying cheap clothes and jewelry crush you under their brand new shoes. This trip really geared me up for spring and jacket wearing weather. Come on, April!
Directions after the pictures.
One of the ways you can get to the rows of street art is by taking Exit 5, Hongik University Station, Line 2. But, you should also be able to take 4 as well.
And from my camera phone…
Directions: From Hongik University Station, Line 2, Green Line: get off at Exit 4 or 5 and just start walking around. Time depends on how long you want to walk around.
