We Are Koryo Studio

The first Western art gallery to commission, exhibit and sell work by artists living and working in North Korea (DPRK).



Koryo Studio has shown its collections with both international public and private organisations, including major exhibitions at the Asia-Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art in Brisbane, Australia, as well as at the Venice Biennale of Architecture, in a show that won the Golden Lion.


We have made 3 award-winning documentaries in conjunction with the BBC4, Passion Pictures and Arte. Our first feature film was shot in Pyongyang in 2012. It’s a comic love story about a coal miner who wants to be an acrobat. We have also re-releases and remastered a classic football film. We are also foreign coordinator of the Pyongyang Film Festival.
