Cheo Reom Park
Cheo Reom Park, a native of Korea, received a BFA from Seoul National University and an MFA from the Pratt Institute in New York. A sculptor, multimedia, installation and tattoo artist of a unique caliber, Cheo continues to create original and provocative work, and to push the boundaries of what is conceived of as “fine art.” Cheo Reom Park continues to represent the most avant-garde Asian, and particularly Korean, art. Since 2002, Cheo Park’s intense and complex installations have been exhibited in both Korea and the United States to widespread critical acclaim. Mr. Park’s innovative installations represent the most avant-garde trend in Korean art today, with a Western-style emphasis on the individual and his emotions. His work exhibited at the Asian Contemporary Art Fair in New York City in 2007, as well as at the 2007 exhibition, “Contemporary Korean Artists in New York,” held in Seoul, Korea.
