MG Park was born on November 22, 1964 in Seoul, Korea. As a
young girl, she was treasured by her father as his youngest daughter.
Her father was a fabric design director at Jae-Il Company in Seoul.
Although her father was not a professional artist, he possessed an
innate artistic nature. Like her father, Park also possessed artistic
talent and wished to pursue art from a young age. Park entered Chu-Gyae
Art College in 1984 to pursue a major in oil painting. After
graduating, she married her husband in 1988.
Park took a few years off of artwork to recharge before
participating in exhibitions. In 1993, the well-known, Korean artist
Ho-Bum Ahn referred her to join an exhibition hosted by the Mokwoo
Artist Association. After that she became a fulltime artist and joined
many exhibitions and art shows.
Park's artwork was prized at the Sin Dong Ah Modern Art Show in
1994. In the same year, she earned high recognition from national and
international art critics at the Korean-Japan Art Exhibition.
Park held a Solo Exhibition in 1995 at the Ye-Il Gallery. In 1998
she participated in a ten artist group exhibition called the 21st
Century Korean Art Identity. In 2000, she earned the grand prize from the Hanyang Art Competition.
Even though Park is very busy with her artwork, she has made time
to be a volunteer at orphanages, nursing homes, and homeless shelters
for more than 10 years.
When asked about her artwork, she mentions that fine art is not
only about pursuing beauty on the outside, but also expressing
inner-beauty. Therefore, she believes that all artists should emphasize
inner-beauty in both their artwork and their lives.
Park enjoys giving joy to people through her artwork and her actions in serving her community.
Her work can be seen at fine art galleries and private collections throughout the United States and Europe.
