On a recent trip to Hongdae I brought along my camera and decided to shoot the graffiti. I’d always noticed the graffiti in Hongdae. I can’t remember really spotting any everywhere else. Maybe a name tagged discreetly somewhere, but nothing as outlandish as what’s found in Hongdae.
Some of the work really did get gritty and extreme. Is it still graffiti if it has a message?
It’s fun just to walk around and try to spot the hidden patches of graffiti art.
Some of it really just involved someone spray paining their name ever so plainly. Maybe that’s a statement in itself?
Suicidal graffiti art? Yup, it’s there.
