Park Eun-Sun was born in 1965 in Mok-Po, South Korea. The discovery of painting, arrived very early in the life of the artist who dreamed of becoming a great painter, yet at twelve years old his parents prevented him from attending the Institute of Art. His art teacher at secondary school, however recognised his skills and allowed him secretly to make use of the class, in which he could practice painting. Park Eun Sun participated in and won several kids painting competitions, and so his parents allowed him to devote himself to art. On moving to Seoul, he enrolled in a degree course at the University of Kyung Hee to become an Art Instructor. After completing his military service, he dedicated himself to housing design, approaching space in this way, perceiving the value of it and studying environments. The importance dedicated to forms and matter brought him nearer to the study of sculpture, resulting in him changing his field of study from painting to sculpture, at the University of Kyung Hee. The discovery of materials passed from the initial use of clay, to marble and granite later, his consolidation as a sculptor developed through participation in numerous group exhibitions and competitions. In 1993 he moved to Italy, to Pietrasanta, where he continued his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Carrara. Repeated travels led him to acquire a sense of ancient and modern beauty, sparking an interest in marble that he began to use in his dual tone sculptures. The first solo exhibitions were held in Florence in 1995, in Munich (Bavaria) in 1996 and in Seoul in 1997. Park Eun Sun’s sculpture develops in the concept of space expressed by Eastern cultures through the abrasion of the surface where cracks, tears and cuts co-exist which symbolize the opening of human inner reality and, at the same time, the total destruction of the material. His works are linear and globular structures, shapes, spheres, cubes and columns without bearing functionality, but supported by allegories and symbols, where ideas and concepts conquer the surrounding space. The columns represent the metaphor: "the birth and budding spring, the embryo that according to nature develops happily into a child and an adult, through the depiction of the column with its shadows". Park Eun-Sun has exhibited in galleries and museums in Italy (Florence, Genova, Pietrasanta, Rome, Turin, Verona) and abroad (Belgium, Korea, France, Germany, England, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Panama, Poland, Singapore, USA, Switzerland). Currently, his working activity is situated between Europe, South Korea and the Americas.
