Wendy Park (b. 1986, Los Angeles, California, lives and works in Los Angeles, California) is a Korean- American painter. She received a BFA from Otis College of Art & Design. She shares her Korean-American stories and socio-economic nuances that remind her of her childhood while capturing her family’s pursuit and manifestation of the American Dream. She hopes her depictions of personal Asian-American nostalgia will build up curiosities of the commerce and culture of the marginalized. She has held solo exhibitions at Various Small Fires, Los Angeles; Kantor Gallery, Los Angeles and Bill Brady Gallery, Miami. She has also exhibited her work at PM/AM, London, UK; Sow and Tailor, Los Angeles; KIAF Seoul, South Korea; Frieze Los Angeles; Half Gallery, Los Angeles and The Pit, Los Angeles. Park will have a solo presentation at Independent, New York in May 2023 as well as a solo exhibition at Various Small Fires, Seoul, South Korea in 2024.
