" One morning, gazing at myself in the mirror, I was surprised. In was not familiar with the person that I saw hurrying up for a daily life. I asked myself: Who am I? But I couldn't get a clear answer. I'm the husband of a woman early in the morning, then a pedestrian in the streets, then a passenger on a bus, then a researcher at an institute, then a customer in a restaurant, then the father of a child at night. I'm living with different roles in every moment and space. And every role has its own colour and shape. I can see myself vaguely at the moment that several layers of colour and shape overlap in the framework of my life. I'm composed in this manner. "

Park's work is based completely on color and transparency. It is simple and fundamental which has been the principal concepts of western art for the past 40 years. His works are based on the concept that creativity is produced from belief and confidence. Park believes that an artist's mission is to create an invisible transcendent being, celebrating the power of existence, and trying to re-create minimalism and simplicity.
His pursuit of transparence shows, not only in the choice of material - acrylic and glass - but also in the expression of three primitive color tones. The traces produced by the color combinations then create an industrial although natural sense. The material used to create this Transparence is impermeable unlike paper or canvas.
His work is a conversation rather than an illusion as we are allowed to look beyond the surface.
Born in 1967 in Korea, Park Byung-Hoon works and lives in Paris since 1992.
He graduated from Inchon City University in South Korea, and School of Fine Art in Versailles, France.
