The Leeum is one of the most excellent art museums in the world with eclectic architecture and a collection of art that pushes the imagination in new directions. They have an excellent Korean collection that shows off excellent pieces of pottery, sculpture, and paintings. A walk through their Korean collections gives an insight to the Korean collective.
Their modern western collection is also top notch with pieces from Andy Warhol, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothk, and Yoshimoto Nara. There is also the breathtaking spider sculpture outside called Maman by Louise Bourgeois.
Be sure to check it out.
These days I am feeling very artsy and with my camera I feel like I can capture some great shots. It’s a Panasonic DMC G-2. My go-to lens is the 20mm with 1.7 aperture. I really like to play around with the different filters they have built into the camera such as “pure, expressive, retro etc. It’s great for me since I am a lazy photographer: I don’t like to photoshop. Anyway, I’ll get back to food pictures soon, but here are a couple shots of my visit to Hyeri Art Village. It was made by the CEO of Crown Bakery. He has been buying up old “Love Motels” and he is converting them to art museums and artist communes. If you are a photographer, I recommend you head up to this place.
