DAE-SUNG

PARK

Born in Kyŏngsang Province in 1945, Park lost his parents and suffered injuries during the Korean War, but overcame his circumstances as a young child to teach himself painting and calligraphy by copying classic texts. An heir to Korea’s “true-view” tradition, his ink-and-wash paintings portray real mountains, trees, houses, and vistas. Park’s paintings of Kyŏngju, where he has lived for over a decade, express the spirit of this ancient capital of the Silla Dynasty and Korean Buddhism. Like the Chosŏn-era scholar-artists before him, Park has traveled extensively, including to Mount Kŭmgang in North Korea, and along the Silk Road through China, the source of his calligraphic subjects.
