    Truc Art Special Exhibition

    The Truc Art exhibition will run through March 1 in the two-story Techno Complex (including the basement) of the Garden 5 building in Songpa-gu. The exhibition will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and admission fees are 12,000 won.

    Truc art refers to super realism in which artists express two-dimensional objects in three-dimensional ways.

    Exhibitions are comprised of art that falls mostly into five categories that focus on the reinterpretation of famous works of art, and coexistence with animals and nature. People can also enjoy taking part in art, famous movie scenes, and optical illusions through the displays.

    Santorini Seoul

    There is an alley behind the Seokyo Hotel that is a landmark for people visiting Mapo-gu, which is where Hongik University is located. This area is usually called “Hongik Univ. parking alley.”

    The “Santorini Seoul,” an art exhibition complex that is reminiscent of the white homes and blue skies of Greece, opened in this alley. You can enjoy Greek-style views in the middle of central Seoul.

    It has a Trompeloeil artwork museum, three galleries, a performance hall and a theme hall featuring cats, all of which will tempt you to bring your camera and take pictures of the displays. Trompeloeil is a French word that means eye tricks. Artworks created by Van Gogh, Munch and Picasso will surprise you when you watch and touch them. The exhibition will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. with an admission fee of 10,000 won.
