Artist Spends 20 Years Sketching South Korea’s Little Convenience Stores

South Korean craftsman Me Kyeoung Lee sees magnificence even in commonplace regular items. Her portrayals of neighborhood accommodation stores are a beguiling and capable go up against what other individuals may pass up a major opportunity.

Lee has been recording these little corner looks for as long as 20 years. “There were relatively few things to see and play like nowadays,” says the craftsman in regards to her childhood. “But there was a time when I was happy to have a coin in my hands and run to a shop and hang out with friends gathered in front of it.”

The craftsman generally picks a quieted, pastel shading palette for her acrylic ink portrays. She attracts thoughtfulness regarding the inviting veneers, stacked racks, and amicable gardens outside. Every scene has its own remarkable components and no two carbon copy.

For an untouchable, such significance of accommodation stores may appear to be odd, yet considering their striking wealth in South Korea (33,000 exist today), it’s normal that local people see them not as structures, but rather more like a necessary piece of culture.
