Hyehwa Station, Daehangno

The area of Seoul known as Daehangno is a popular and fairly hip place for younger, more student types. It features an outdoor performance park known as Marronier Park, home also to Marronier Art Centre. Plenty of bars, restaurants etc, but what’s cool about it is that the main street is adorned with loads of public art. It just keeps going!

Of course my favourite is the mosaic poo!? Atleast that’s what it looks like šŸ™‚ I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be any form of excrement, though I discovered this mosaic through another picture on Flickr, and they too referred to it as poo!

There are 3 of them, grouped together and are funky! I digg it šŸ˜‰ Surprise, surprise! I don’t know who the artist is! All made of glass, the only gripe I have with it is the white grout. When will white grout on mosaics be banned!? There are other lighter colours that work. White grout does not work!!! White is not a neutral when it comes to this medium. White is evil!!! There! I said it for the millionth time, feel a little better. Lol.

Now I really must get off this computer!!! I have a cake and cookies to bake because I have a playdate with my best friend ever tomorrow. I’m very excited because she lives on this awesome farm, it’s beautiful. It’s beautiful because she works very hard to keep it that way. She is my mosaic-buddy and I have been on her and on her to let me show her work here…Alas, it’s not her thing – yet!? šŸ˜‰

But I also received my hammer and hardie yesterday and I want to go play…
