Graffiti Art Project Colors Philippine City In Celebration Of ASEAN And Korea’s Friendship
Great artwork for a great ASEAN-Korea teamwork!
The Korean Cultural Center (KCC) in the Philippines organizes the Beyond Borders: The Graffiti Art Project to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the ASEAN and the ASEAN-Korea Cultural Exchange Year.
The KCC in the Philippines partnered with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) and the Bonifacio Art Foundation, Inc. (BAFI) for a 35 x 27.5-meter mural located at the corner of 26th Street and 5th Ave. in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City, Philippines. The Graffiti Art Project is being led by its Project Director Park Young Gyun from Korea.
KCC, NCCA, and BAFI commissioned artists from the ASEAN-Korea countries to paint a mural in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City – one of the Philippines art-infused cities. It aims to celebrate friendship of ASEAN and Korea through the collaborative work and interactions of visual artists from the ASEAN-Korea countries.
According to KCC Director Lee Jincheol, the project aims to represent a community effort by the ASEAN-Korea countries, and to utilize cultural symbols as a way of creating an impact internally and externally to the public.
“Through this mural, artists from the different ASEAN-Korea countries could share their cultural traditions and art to a wider audience. It is also a good opportunity to showcase ASEAN and Korea’s stronger relationship,” said Lee.
