Park Seo-Bo
“Art without spirit is not art. Art has to have soul.” - Park Seo-Bo
Few Korean artists have achieved the fame of Park Seo-Bo (Korean, b.1931), who has been a major figure in the Korean avant-garde from the Post-War era to the present day. Scholars have compared Park’s public persona in Korea to that of Andy Warhol in the United States—an enduring notoriety sustained as much by the artist’s charismatic self-presentation as by the art itself.

Ramie fabric has kept Koreans cool during the hot summer months for the past 1,500 years. Now the weaving of fine ramie in the Hansan region of Korea, a tradition that has come to symbolize the perseverance of Korean women, has been registered as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity since 2011. Fine ramie from the Hansan region in South Chungcheong Province is a popular fabric for summer clothing due to its light weight and cool texture however producing the fabric is highly labor-intensive. There are at least six different stages to the process, from gathering ramie plants to bleaching them, and a craftswoman spends three months weaving the filaments into fabric.
