The artist

 

hyungi park is a korean american multidisciplinary artist based in los angeles, ca. while experimenting with incense in her performance and installation work, hyungi found most commercially available incense was chemically produced and used heavy synthetic fragrances. seeking a product that better aligned with the spiritual and herbalist elements of her practice, she began making small batches of all natural incense using woods, herbs, and flowers. finding her homemade incense popular with friends and patrons, she launched her own line of hand made incense blending traditional methods with modern innovations. her incense work has been featured in the new york times and architectural digest, and she has worked with moca, urban outfitters, nike, and spotify. she currently teaches incense making workshops at her studio, baboshop.
