Myung "Mario" Jung was born in 1949 in Seoul, Korea. His promising career as an artist began in the 1980’s, but 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 an inspirational, spiritual dream that renewed his strength and his will to live. Perplexing and amazing all who knew him, Mario recovered completely and has since meticulously developed his flexible artistic style. Working in a multitude of genres, Mario’s emerging popularity is heightened by his ability to create a diverse range of work from classic and realistic skills, popular among Nu Realism collectors, to passionate impastos with richly textured details. His extraordinary attention to detail and use of light, reflection, and dramatic brush strokes uniquely distinguish his work from his contemporaries. Jung has an outstanding national and international reputation as an Artist.
