Koryo Studio

Koryo Studio is the first gallery outside North Korea to commission, exhibit and sell work by revered artists from the DPRK. You can buy on-line, discuss the projects with director Nicholas Bonner, or visit our Studio in Beijing.

Koryo Projects

We believe passionately in engagement. We thrive on exchanging ideas and launching projects to give people the opportunities that interaction brings and are all designed to take small steps towards better engagement.

Slide 3
Propaganda Posters

Propaganda is produced throughout North Korea at various studios around the country. Due to interest and demand from visitors who travelled with us via Koryo Tours, we produced hand painted copies of existing posters; commissioned because of their aesthetics or their interesting and often idiosyncratic content
