Building Made of 1000 Doors by Choi Jeong-Hwa

In previous article we presented you an artist who have found a way how to recycle the old wine corks and make gorgeous artworks. Here is an artist and designer from South Korea, who used a thousand old doors to make a strange  building. This brilliant  public art installation called “Doors” was built in Soeul back in 2009. Using 1,000 recycled doors, Choi Jeong-Hwa transformed an otherwise nondescript, 10-storey facade into a eye-dazzling delight of colours and textures.

Choi Jeong-Hwa in his interview:  “In 1989. I couldn’t really draw so I didn’t think I could become a painter, but I really liked walking. So I used to walk “between streets and narrow alleys and discover garbage piles and construction sites. I realized that “normal” people built and created things better than artists or professionals. Plus, what they were making was more natural. I decided against becoming an artist and decided instead to be an ordinary person who thinks like an artist”
