The Painters: HERO – an Art Performance

CONTRIBUTED BY CHRISTINE BRUNS

A friend and I went to see The Painters at the Seoul Cinema in Jongno, where we both enjoyed a much needed night out on the town.

The Painters - title

The website and brochure bill the show as “an innovative art performance that stages the mid-blowing skills of live drawing with incredible visual effects filled with a witty blend of mime, dance, and comedy right before your eyes”. That was definitely the case!

The artists came out to the theme of “Charlie’s Angels” and immediately started the audience participation section by calling a very shy, unsuspecting woman on stage. They did this a few times and of course the “victims” were rewarded with show swag. They continued their comedic behavior throughout the performance, all while creating beautiful art in various mediums – pastels, paint, ink, and even Rubik’s cubes!
