PARK Chan-Girl (1974-)
PARK Chan-Girl is a Korean sculptor born in 1974. He received his BFA in Sculpture from Chungham National University and his MFA in Fine Arts from KyungHee University. He is a member of the Korean Fine Art Association and a visiting professor at Hyupsung University.
Chan-Girl is known for his large-scale metal sculptures made from thin layers he calls “sliced images” that often resemble three dimensional topography charts. By meticulously welding thousands of small steel nuts into human and animal forms, Chan-Girl creates poignant, delicately textured sculptures. Chan-Girl’s technique of layered metal produces a curious effect that, while depicting a complete figure from afar, utilizes spacial gaps from up close that force the viewer’s gaze to move from the pieces to the whole.
PARK Chan-Girl has exhibited in over one hundred solo and group exhibitions in Korea. He is the recipient of the 2013 Seoul Art Fair public contest and the 2014 Korea Land & Housing Incorporation public contest. His sculptures adorn numerous public venues worldwide.
