Artwork In My Neighborhood

Some local artists recently gave one of my local backstreets a serious face lift with some beautiful murals.  They primed (or painted white) about 20-30 meters of the walls on a narrow street located between my school and apartment.  When my Dad came for his visit they were still in the pencil and outline phase, and finished painting them a couple weeks ago.  It is really nice to see almost every day.  I don't walk by it on the way to school, but whenever Mr. Park and I go on our (almost) daily walks we go down this street.

Here is a picture from further down the street, so you can have a sense of what it looked like before this beautification project went down.

Video of the opposite wall walking back towards my school.

This is my favorite one.  

I guess this is part of an old traditional game called "horse."  It looks like an initiation or act of bullying to me though, haha.

Here is a very different, but cool portion of the artwork.

  1. The poor kid who has to be the 'horse'. I like the last picture with the birds. That is one narrow street! I guess Asia and Europe both like narrow alleys and streets. I'll have to check out the videos later tonight. From what I can see of the video images it looks nice.
