Seoul’s visual culture

I am fascinated by Seoul’s visual culture. It seems that aspects of commercial art and spontaneous art are frequently combined in harmonious and compelling patterns. Here are a few examples.

 

This strip of concrete above a subway entrance includes a compelling combination of commercial art, graffetti and advant garde art.

A close up of the previous  strip reveals a beetle on a  tiny poster and an even smaller poster entitled "NEF" (or, in even smaller print, "never ending fun").
