"Painter John Park's work is an attempt to reconcile classical influences with the more urban aesthetic of the New Contemporary art movement. He has a very precise, controlled hand however, signature to his style are element of surrealism and humanism. Park lives in Los Angeles but born in Korea and raised in Ohio. He studied classical drawing, painting, sculpture, and anatomy at the Rhode Island School of Design. During his studies, he made it a point to recreate a classic education for himself but, after earning his degree in illustration, broke away from the rigidity of classical figures.

Today, he uses all figures in his work with a twist: they're elongated and abstracted but recognizable. Park says, "Having narrative elements, especially human figures is what attracts people. People love people. We love our fellow human beings whether we want to admit it or not. We're fascinated by our fellow human beings. It's the one thing in art we will never ever tire of."
