Eliot Park - Technician

Eliot Park is an artist, maker, and overthinker. Raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia by Korean immigrants, who ran a wholesale store, and by American television, Eliot had an intimate relationship to object, image, and the American dream. After getting his BFA in Furniture Design from the Rhode Island School of Design, he worked as a fabricator and woodshop manager at various companies in the Philadelphia and New York area. He received his MFA in Applied Craft + Design at the Oregon College of Art and Craft and the Pacific Northwest College of Art. After being awarded a yearlong co-curating residency, he moved back to the east coast where he explores themes of family, individuality, and meaning through failing objects and material. eliotmade.com
