Jeong Park was born on 27 October 1971 in Dong-Hae. In 1991 he fractured his 4th and 5th dorsal vertebrae in a swimming accident. This resulted in permanent paralysis of his arms and legs and confined Jeong to the wheelchair. In 1991 he read a report about the publishing house in South Korea. After contacting the publisher and receiving the requested information he started to paint with his mouth. It was only two years later that he became a Student Member of the Association. This gave him the opportunity to receive painting lessons once a week, enabling him to continuously improve his painting skills and thereby also his work.
