Ephemeral Beauty 2020
Site-specific mural for a hotel/residency in Gangnam district in Seoul. Inspired by the hotel’s name/identity ‘cappuccino’, the overall theme is foam and bubbles.
Embodying the quote ‘life is beautiful because it doesn’t last’, the mural suggests that despite the negative connotations of bubbles, the ephemeral nature is what makes them beautiful.
Location: Hotel Cappuccino Seoul
