Kyung Soon Park
Painting, Booth 927
Kyung was born in South Korea and moved to Canada in 2000. She received her BAA from Sheridan ITAL. Her work brings a distinctly modern Asian aesthetic to feminine iconography juxtaposed against the power of, and reconciled to, nature. Her mastery of colour delivers both joy and depth to her themes and her unique talents of illustration bring detail and finesse to her images. She finds inspiration in her memories of the Korean textiles from her parents’ business back in South Korea, and from her hands-on artistry with plants and flowers. Kyung is concentrating on fine art painting after working as an illustrator for many years. Her illustrations have been published internationally in Switzerland, England, France, US and Canada.
