pen and watercolor ( 21 x 29.6cm sketchbook )Marronnier Park (마로니에 공원 ) is located on the former site of Seoul National University, Daehak-ro(대학로), one of the famous districts for youth culture in downtown Seoul. Renowned architect Kim Su-geun (김수근) designed the unique red brick walls encompassing the park. The park is also surrounded by a number of art and cultural centers.The passion of youth and thirst for culture have always filled Daehak-ro and Marronnier Park, which have become symbolic of this cultural district. I visited and sketched around this vibrant park several times before and was fascinated with vivid colors and atmospheres. In celebration of the 44th World Wide SketchCrawl, We Seoul usk members met at this attractive park and had a good sketch time.
대학로 마로니에 공원은, 캠퍼스의 옛 낭만, 근대 서울의 애환, 젊은이들의 놀이와 시민 축제로 이어지는 복합문화공간입니다. 생동감 있는 테마와 역동적인 젊은 흐름들이 끝없이 이어지는 스케쳐들의 보금자리... 서울의 핵심 오아시스라 하겠습니다.
