Beginning with his 2018 solo exhibition, < HWARANGDO (花郞徒) – a crowd of beautiful men, bul-il Museum >, Park has been working to capture various stories related to queer in a traditional way of painting.

‘Cham’ in the title refers to a dance performance ritual in Tibetan Buddhism, and the Masquerade’ literally means a masquerade ball in Tibetan Buddhism. The similarity and difference between the two words in the title form a kind of relationship between words, which are perceived differently according to the audience. The nature of this relationship is the artist’s greatest intention to convey to this exhibition.

In this exhibition, autobiographical narratives were excluded, and the form of religious painting was borrowed to try ‘stylization’, and the artist’s style formed in this process is a regularity that reflects’ unity and equity between works. Besides, to exclude autobiographical narratives, rather a meta-based approach, using the ways of previous solo exhibition < Hwarangdo > series, dismantled/recombined with a new approach that has not been tried before, and attempted an experiment on traditional painting media. And is throwing a message as a traditional artist for contemporary art.
