JiYang Park – 1995

As a kid I have always been interested in art. I grew up under parents who are keen in fashion. However, I never thought art and design could be my career until I realized that I love working on design and art more than anything. It took me a long way to study fashion eventually. Still, my wish could not be achieved because I had to face financial issues.

Since I was unable to finish the course, I decided to encourage myself to be an independent designer. Although I have only started making my very own accessories recently, I enjoy the condition of being solo designer as I am free to do what I want and do not need to go through complicated process or explanations.

To explain my works that are to be presented are refinements of my random thoughts and ideas. They do not depend on any art theme but solely my thoughts that have been coming up to my mind time by time.

He has started learning photography by working as a photographer assistant and contributed in the shoot as a fashion stylist; using his fashion-related skills that he has learnt in the past.  The advantage of working in two roles has enabled him to get more working opportunities and experiences. Also, it has let him to view things from a wider perspective on his personal work.

“Generally, most people attempt to be recognised as a person of their desired look; a mask that covers what they desire to hide underneath. The masks are sometimes overvalued and spontaneously provoke oneself to act indiscriminately. My project involves photographic images that explore this concept of the mask and asks the viewers to question themselves regarding the matter.“
