The artist’s alias "Paik Gannomi" was the signature name the artist used for his artworks, and Paik Tchurl Geuk was his official Korean name. He died in Los Angeles, California in 2007.

This exhibition will have on display over 24 paintings, croquis/drawings, memorabilia such as photographs, and his personal letters. These works will truly resonate a sense of warmth and passion within the viewers' hearts.
