(The painters are students and
were supervised a teacher)
And as I was turning a bend towards the busier part of the village, I was surprised to see a group of young Koreans painting the walls of some homes.
A couple of days after, I deliberately passed by the alley to see for myself the finished drawings. They were of cute pig characters painted on all the homes on that alley.
The painters were just college students who volunteered their time and artistry to transform this corner of the neighborhood into an artsy stretch.
(The finished masterpieces)
So, in case you're wandering around a certain neighborhood in the Dongdaemun District in Seoul and chance upon these drawings, these were done by several teenagers who, for a day or two, were the neighborhood street painters.
I love this neighborhood!
