For his artistic education the artist attended Hong-Ik University located in Seoul, Korea. Park Seo-Bo is a modernist painter who enjoys dealing with the ideas of nature and space. That nature and man are indeed one body.

Some critics claim he is an action painter. It seems as if he is certainly trying to create tension by using so many varieties of medium, but each is used subtly, nothing is overdone. The main theme through this action painter it seems is to create his vision, to leave his energy on the canvas.
