Jung Nam Yoon was born in Korea in 1944. Early in life he was fascinated by art. With understanding and support of his mother who also loved art, he was able to study painting.
Yoon’s main interest is gardening. His reasoning is found in his quote “A garden is an artificial space which men make in an attempt to create nature in their possession. It might sound strange, but I regard artificiality as an action of human’s searching for the long lost nature.”
