Ripping Up the Korean Calendar and Wheat Pasting It Back Together
New York Street Artist Gaia has been having a blast in Seoul, South Korea for a couple of weeks – studying, watching the World Cup, and putting up giant Tigerabbits. Part of his project of lifting symbols from the traditional Korean calendar, this sternly earnest creature combines the animals from 2010 and 2011 into one. Much like the North American Jackalope, the Tigerabbit is elusive and infrequently spotted in the wild, much less the urban environment. Either way, the New Era in Street Art is afoot.
