Art brightens South Korean industrial city

A dreary grain silo was transformed into a piece of giant, colourful art in Incheon, South Korea has been named by Guinness World Records as the largest outdoor mural in the world.

    An industrial city in South Korea is now home to the world's largest outdoor painted mural.

    A series of grain silos in Incheon were painted to resemble a row of books telling the story of a boy's journey into adulthood, while also depicting all four seasons.

    The city, home to the international airport that serves nearby Seoul, hopes the mural will appeal to tourists and is now considering other industrial buildings as canvases for potential art.
