My first year at the Calligraphy Academy has now come to an end. And after a year of visiting the centre every week, I have to say that to me, Seoul Art Centre is the most beautiful place to visit in Seoul.
This month we have dramatic winter days where silhouettes of persimmon fruit cling to the bare branches of the trees. It’s as though they want to reflect the organic black inked lines of the calligraphy paintings on display inside the museum.
It always looks different every time I go and it’s gorgeous all year around. The architecture is modern yet with a nod to the past with the traditional bamboo hat roof of the opera house. (below, with the green roof) And it all nestles in the mountain surrounded by nature.
In the rainy season the concrete becomes shiny mirrors.
A yellow umbrella provides a pop of colour
Then the rusty maple bring energy and passion in autumn before falling to leave mosaic art on stone.
