Mario Jung Biography

MARIO JUNG

Born in Seoul, South Korea on September 14, 1949, Myung

“Mario” Jung began his promising career as a professional

artist in the mid 1980’s.

Graduating from the Seoul Industrial Junior College in 1971,

Mario longed for his artistic talents to take flight and in 1986

he entered the Exhibition of Fine Art of the Seoul Artists Association

where he was awarded the Grand Prize of Western

style painting. Due to this immediate success, Mario was invited

to become a member of the Seoul Artists Association,

which he has now been a member of for over 30 years.

His life changed dramatically when he was paralyzed, blinded and deafened as side

effects from a catastrophic, third-story, balcony fall. Not even interested in food,

Mario was giving up until he had a spiritual dream that renewed his strength and his

will to live.

Leaving doctors, family, and friends amazed and perplexed, Mario recovered completely

and has since meticulously developed his flexible artistic style. Hiss multifaceted

talents allow him to create richly colored landscapes, brimming with texture

and warmth. Brushstrokes announced by fields of color and thick paint bring viewers

to the setting sun across the spanning poppies or nestle them safely under a shaded

tree. In contrast, his photo realistic paintings create subtlety and sensuality as two

lilies intertwine or pears reflect across a stark black canvas. Truly a talented artist,

Mario’s emerging popularity is heightened by his ability to create such a diverse

range of work.
