Chung Chang-Sup

(1927 - 2011), South Korea

Among the first generation of artists educated in Korea after its liberation, Chung Chang-Sup was an influential abstract painter who experimented with Art Informel, monochrome painting, and Minimalism in a lifelong search for the identity of Korean art. He is especially known for his paintings on 'dakjongi' mulberry paper, or 'tak' works, produced by adhering wet fibres extracted from the tree bark directly onto the canvas. The last series of works he produced before his death, Mukgo, which means thoughts of silence, epitomises the achievement of his contribution to the modern Korean painting movement.

Born in Cheongju, Korea, Chung Chang-Sup recieved an MFA from the College of Fine Arts, Seoul National University. He held an honourary professorship there until the time of his death. His retrospective was mounted at the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Gwacheon, Gyeonggi Province, in 2010.
