The Street of Art
Ranked #2 of 2 Shopping in Gwangju
Attraction details
Reviewed 30 December 2012

While my friends and I walked down it all we saw were art schools. A bit of graffiti but not too much other than that. We thought there would be arts and crafts for sale, art galleries and the like (well, one school had a viewing area) but there wasn't much.

The Gwangju tourist authority will have you believe that the street of art is a kin to Monmarte in Paris and although it is not without its charm this is a little wide of the mark. The street is easily reached from the main shopping area of down town Gwangju and is worth a stroll if your in the area.
The renovated street is home to several commercial galleries along with four or five art supply shops and a few cafes. If you catch it on a good day there is plenty to do and see, but these days are hard to predict and few. Art Street certainly provides a welcome counter balance to the crazed shopping crowds just five minutes away and the small shops offer some interesting Korean souvenirs such as calligraphy brushes.
