Enchanting Paintings of South Korea’s Small Convenience Stores by Me Kyeoung Lee

South Korean artist Me Kyeoung Lee created these enchanting paintings of tiny bodegas discovered on her travels around her home country.
She’s spent the past 20 years depicting these mini-corner shops, many of which are now disappearing.

There were not many things to see and play like these days,” Me Kyeoung Lee reminisces, “but there was a time when I was happy to have a coin in my hands and run to a shop and hang out with friends gathered in front of it.”
