Park, Soungchuel

Artist Park Soungchuel who received a B.A. and an M.F.A in metal craft at the Department of Craft in Chung-Ang University and its Graduate School acquired a PhD in craft at the Department of Art Research in the Graduate School of Tokyo University of the Arts. He has presented his works in numerous exhibitions including the Cheongju International Craft Biennale, and currently works at the Department of Design and Media at Baekseok University. He has strived to express the proper mindset and attitudes required of a ceramist through his works based on such themes as time, thinking, planning, experience and repetition. He has sought to generate works which are completed by only leaving the minimum usage – pragmatics – and sharing other facets of the works with others. He has made new attempts recently through combination of lacquer and other materials.
