Sariah Park is an interdisciplinary artist with over fifteen years of experience in fiber, print, and fashion design. Now based in New York’s Hudson Valley, Park grew up in Texas with a background in visual arts. Growing up in a family of artists and makers, Park learned drawing, painting, weaving, and sewing from an early age. It was her appreciation of art and craft that led her to study textiles and fashion at Parsons School of Design in New York and Parsons Paris. While in Paris, Park apprenticed for Mahlia Kent, the weaving company famous for creating Chanel’s wovens. Park’s BFA thesis collection won the prestigious Gold Thimble Award for her silkscreened sportswear and handwoven designs. Her thesis collection was bought by Barneys New York directly out of school and catapulted her career into fashion. Park’s work has also been featured and sold around the world with select retailers like Neiman Marcus, Louis Boston, Creatures of Comfort, Barneys Japan, and United Arrows. Park has collaborated with Anthropologie and URBN INC. to produce a line of her signature printed apparel. Her work has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Women’s Wear Daily, Vogue.com, Elle, and Harper’s Bazaar. Park is the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Fellowship in 2019, as well as the CERF+ Artist Grant. Her work is included in private collections, portfolios, and traveling exhibitions. Sariah Park is an MFA degree candidate for Spring 2020 from the State University of New York at New Paltz. Park’s current research is focused on the development of sustainable printing methods. Her most recent body of work features the upcycling and repurposing of dead stock and damaged printed textiles into new forms and printing with waste to create large-scale works on paper. In addition to having her own practice, Sariah Park has been teaching art and design at Parsons School of Design for the last eight years.
