Jieun Park

Jieun Park is a rising star from South Korea whose love of travel inspires her striking paintings. Combining detailed depictions of urban architecture with the fluid brushstrokes of traditional Korean art, her works try to capture the emotions of excitement and loneliness which being in a city evokes for her: “What I try to express through my works are the emotions that I felt at the specific moments during the journey. I remember how I was emotionally overwhelmed and felt lonely by looking down at the city from on high.”
