Explore the different group and solo exhibitions here and take an artistic break from the 'work hard, play hard' scene. Superior Gallery is a place for people who love all things artsy - for locals and tourists alike... however, Superior Gallery might be hard for tourists to track down - as the only way to find this, is by knowing a local art connoisseur, (luckily we do).
These exhibitions rarely run for very long, so you have to move quickly in order to catch a glimpse of the extraordinary. We were lucky to get a hint from a personal contact, Felix Park, a German/Korean adoptee, previously based in Berlin, now relocated to Seoul and working with art exhibition planning and as a curator for Wooyoungmi.
Felix photographed some of the local Korean artists exhibiting their paintings, My Guide Seoul, came across his photos on Facebook and Felix unveiled his secret. We've now got ourselves another very local, very authentic thing to explore here in Seoul, South Korea - we love this dynamic city that never sleeps!
