Jei Park 1988, Born in Seoul, South Korea.
Currently lives and works in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Jei Park studied fine art from the recognized art schools in South Korea, the U.S., and the U.K from 2001-2011. Her work has been exhibited in South Korea as a solo show and nationally in the U.S., the U.K, South Korea and Italy as a group show. She published a book about her life around the kitchen in the countryside of South Korea in 2015, South Korea.
She is now living in Chiang Mai studying painting at the graduate school of Chiang Mai University Faculty of Fine Art.
Her current artworks (drawing, painting, installation) are about sincere moments she found in everyday life when longing for love she had in her childhood -especially around food. By doing so, she hopes to make her longing as a positive act for herself and others. This journey has been helping her live more in the present.
