Jong Kyu Park

(South Korea 1966 -)


Biography

Park Jong Kyu works are united by his unique incorporation of digital imagery and the overturn of dimensions is always the major context of PARK’s practice. The artist has divided his concepts and worked under a specific theme each year: Encoding (2015), Maze of Onlookers (2016), and Embodiment (2017). He utilizes these concepts with the array of media, such as paintings, installations, photographs, and videos to showcase his artistic and visionary experiments to the audience. In the paintings, PARK reveals his meticulous attention to detail and through the video installations, he shows his dedication to exploring contemporary social issues such as mass surveillance.
