Suku Park was born in Seoul in 1947 and attended the Fine Arts College of the Seoul National University in Korea (1966-1970) before moving to Stockholm, Sweden in 1974 to graduate from the Swedish State School of Arts & Design, currently known as Konstfack.
In early 1980s Suku Park was the art director for Pentik Novus and lived with his family in Posio, where he established his first studio in Finland. He worked in Posio from 1984 to 1987 where he established an international career in modern ceramics. In 1984 Suku Park moved his studio along his family to Espoo, and later in 1997 was a member of Onoma (The Cooperative of Artisans, Designers and Artists in Finland). The same year he established a larger studio in Fiskars, an artisan village 80km from Helsinki.
Suku Park’s international career began from the early days in Posio and he has since exhibited in multiple countries with collections ranging from the National Museum in Stockholm, Museum of Painting & Sculpture in Istanbul to Musée Ariana in Geneva. Suku Park was a professor at Sangmyung University in Seoul, South Korea from 2001 and moved back to Posio in 2011, where he currently lives and works.
