Children's book illustration exhibition - Seoul Arts center, til June 23
"Voyage to the world of illustration": Do you remember the last storybook you read? The exhibition running at Hangaram Art Museum at the Seoul Arts Center in Seocho-dong invites you to the world of childish innocence.
More than 450 original storybook illustrations by 65 world-renowned illustrators including Anthony Browne, Helen Oxenbury, Herve Tullet, and Korean illustrators such as Go Ji-young, Choi Sook-hee and Choi Hyun-mook are on display.
This is the second exhibition of the same title since 2007. Compared with the first time, this exhibition has doubled in size and the number of exhibits. More graceful than cartoons and easier to understand than complex contemporary art, the showcased illustrations easily catch viewers' eyes regardless of age.
The show runs through June 23 at Hangaram Art Museum at the Seoul Arts Center in Seocho-dong, southern Seoul.
Tickets are 10,000 won.
