After graduating from Jung Ang University in 1973, S. Sam Park traveled to France, where he studied painting and lived with other young artists in Paris. His artistic style today clearly reflects the inspiration of the French Impressionists. While in Europe, S. Sam Park continued to study and to evolve his vision of impressionism and hyper-realism. He established himself in several European galleries, and continues to exhibit in many of them today. His works were written about in a variety of newspapers and magazines, including the European Travel Press and Euroko, a Korean magazine in Europe. S. Sam Park came to the United States of America in 1994, where he continues to live on the coast of Southern California.
