The future is yours to create street art, using Seoul City as a canvas. Well at least that's what I can gather from the video from "Absolut city Canvas".


In the video, 40 Artists took 18 days to transform 5 streets. Hongik University, Mullae-dong, Itaewon, Gahoe-dong and Seongsu-dong.

I was inspired by this video and wanted to have a look at it. I started my day out trying to find the street at Hongik University, but somehow couldn't find the street art from this video. I guess I missed it somehow, so I moved on to Mullae-dong.

Mullae-dong is a very industrial, old part of Seoul, that attracted artists from all around. People wanted to transform this neglected old part of Seoul into a creative art "factory", by regenerating the old empty spaces into their studios. The art streets of Mullae is often described as the art village.

I do think this is a great idea, but after walking around the area trying to find the murals, I noticed that a lot more needs to be done to resurrect this hard looking area. The street art is a great start, but still too small to make a big difference.
