Road Design of the 1st Street, Anyang 안양1번가 도로 디자인

Tess Jaray designed the floor of the 1st Street of Anyang, which is considered as one of the busiest street in Anyang, as a part of the Urban Redevelopment Project when he was invited to the First Anyang Public Art Project (APAP hereafter). It is an artwork rooted on the patterns of Hanok (Korean traditional house) and geometric patterns he has been working on for a long time. He created this artwork with carpet that would not stand out but gives sense of stability in mind. The artist started to be known for his geometrical abstract paintings in the mid 1960s. He expanded his territory for his artwork to public places after mid 1980s: he covered a sidewalk with terrazzo (Victoria Station in UK, 1986), he decorated the ground by making variety of patterns with bricks (Buckingham Midland Art Center, 1987), and he designed the whole square with red and blue bricks (Centenary Square, Birmingham, 1988). From paintings to public art, Tess Jaray has been paying attention and exploring for the immanent vitality of typical patterns, and he has designed new patterns every time for specific places, especially for public artworks.
