VICTOR BALL

Victor Ball was born in Young Joo, Kyungnam. He spent his childhood in Chulan where he was surrounded by beautiful nature. Even at a very early age Victor was noticed for his precocious talent. He loved to draw pictures from comic books or magazines with his simple brushes and pencils. He loved to give away his drawings to his friends. He spent most of his time drawing landscapes during his elementary school years. As Victor grew older, he moved to Seoul to attend high school. Shortly thereafter, he joined an art studio.

Victor Ball drew all manner of subjects, but he really enjoyed working inside Kyung Bok palace from the Chosun Dynasty of 19th century. After graduating from high school, Victor was drafted for military service. During his consignment, he was sent to a base near the 38 degree parallel. While he was serving his nation, Victor was commissioned by his commanding officers to paint a landscape of the North and South Korean border. It was a landscape whose beauty was still untouched and preserved from human hands.  

After serving 3 years in the military, he found a job as an art studio instructor in a newspaper ad. It proved to be the perfect job for him. When he was not teaching, he was able to concentrate his spare time on painting. Many of his creative works have had the good fortune of being exhibited at a galleries with other groups of artists. His exhibitions have been a grand success and his paintings are beginning to appear in America. He is now a member of Mokwoo Association, which is the foremost Korean artists association, and he is currently working on murals for major company buildings in Seoul, Korea.
