So, when I first arrived in Korea, I hardly noticed any graffiti at all. But as you spend time in a place, your focus narrows a bit, I suppose, and I actually came across some things I’m surprised I never noticed before.
All of these were collected in Hongdae and most were collected in November, but I never got around to posting them.
The first thing I noticed was a lot of stencils:
Queer Trap Stencils: (apparently a Seoul thing?)
Flower Boo Boo Stencils:
And some paintings:
I noticed this “Why So Serious?” message in a couple of places. Apparently it’s the “MOMORMORE PROJECT”:
And – although the Momormore crowd would not be wrong in accusing me of taking things too seriously from time to time – there is just one more thing I’d like to say.
Most of you know that I’ve done some work in Haiti – and I very much appreciate your emails asking about my friends there. I’m happy to report that no one I know was directly harmed, from what I’ve heard. But of course many people have been affected and will continue to be for some time. I think Partners in Health is a very trustworthy organization and I encourage you to donate as much as you can as many times as you can, whether there or to another honest organization. http://www.standwithhaiti.org/haiti
