Korean sculptor Park Chan-girl constructs metal sculptures from thin metal layers he calls “sliced images” that resemble three dimensional topography charts. He also meticulously welds thousands of small steel nuts into a delicately textured skin, moulding it into human and animal forms. He received his BFA in Sculpture from Chungnam National University and his MFA in Fine Arts from KyungHee University and has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions across Korea and China.
