Park Seo-Bo

Park Seo-Bo was born in Yecheon in Kyoungbuk Province, Korea in 1931 and grew up in Ansung in Kyoungki Province. He studied Western painting at Hongik University, and after graduating in 1954, he started his artistic career with the Anti-Kukjeon Declaration in which he repudiated the Kukjeon artists’ aesthetics challenging their artistic conscious and perspective of society. The work Painting no.1(1957) resolutely signals Park Seo-Bo’s vanguard attitude towards the making of idealistic images of the Kukjeon artists. Primordialis No.62-3 and Primordialis no.1-62 in 1962, and Hereditarius no.1-68 in 1968 provide critical clues in analysing a conceptual transition of his works that lay a coherent foundation for his oeuvre.
