In the spring of 2014, I visited Seoul for a second time. One of the places that stood out in my memory was Naksan Park and Mural Village. I didn’t know anything about the park, but was lead there by a friend who knew I liked graffiti and art. Naksan Park was filled with color, creativity, and hills. I’ve always liked finding surprises in ordinary scenes and seeing the unexpected, I wasn’t disappointed. Walking down some stairs, we would a mosaic of daises spanning at least 10 steps. Absolutely lovely!
