sketchcrawl


48th World Wide SketchCrawl 행사 안내 :

Date : 2015년 7월 25일 토요일, 10:30 am - 4:00 pm
Place : 서울시청사 - Seoul City Hall
Meeting spot : 지하철 1호선 4번 출구에서 나와 청사 입구 옆에 있는 쉼터 (small resting place out of exit 4 in Seoul city hall station, subway no. 1, near the entrance to city hall)

서울 시청사 건물이 새로 지어진지도(2012년) 여러해가 되는데 청사 건물 안팍을 함께 스케치하지 못하여 이번 여름 스케치크롤 장소로 택해보았습니다. 한국의 중심을 본격적으로 그려서 소개했으면 합니다. 관심있는 분들의 참석 바랍니다.

(Since new city hall had been built on 2012 it's first time for us to sketch together. Inside the hall there are lots of interesting spaces for concerts, cafe, exhibition including observatory hall on 8th. As a capital city building surrounded with historical palace, churches, and business buildings we may find nice subjects in and out of city hall with citizens. Hope you to join us and enjoy the sketching together!)

Women's cell in Seodaemun Prison and History Hall, Seoul



Women's cell in Seodaemun Prison, pen, watercolor, 25 x 25 cm

On June 2009 I sketched the above one at Seodamun Prison located near Seodaemun Independence Park, Seoul. There the Japanese style building caught my eye. I looked for the information about the building. It was built on 1916 under the Japanese colonial ruling period. Under the ground floor there were four women's cells to the height of 1.48 m that the prisoner couldn't stand upright. The patriot Ryu Kwan-soon died there. The basement was buried on 1934 but restored on 1992. I wanted to go there again some day to sketch and feel our painful history.  I could visit again with Seoul Urban Sketchers this month. We harvested a lot of sketches thanks to the true patriots fighted for the national independence.
