Koryo Studio North Korean Art

Koryo Studio art for purchase is a collection of North Korean art commissions. We develop briefs that free the artists from the limitations of the North Korean art world and, as a collaboration with Koryo Studio, give them more latitude to experiment. Due to these opportunities, local North Korean artists constantly seek us out and pitch their ideas.

In a system where copy work abounds, we make sure the commission process and artworks are fully recorded. Due to sensitivities in certain cases, not all information on the artist will be made available. Our aim is to produce a limited selection of artworks for collectors who want to be a part of North Korea’s contemporary art history.

30+ Years in North Korea


Koryo Studio has been operating in or engaging with North Korea (DPRK) since 1993. Alongside the oldest running tour operator to North Korea, Koryo Tours, we have frequently visited the country over the past 30+ years. Apart from works of art, we have also made a number of documentaries inside the country, collaborating with companies such as the BBC.



With North Korean Artists


Collaborating with and commissioning pieces from the artists we work with frees them from the limitations and proscriptions of the North Korean art world. Moreover, it gives them more latitude to experiment. Indeed, the recorded commission process gives provenance in a system where copy work abounds.



A North Korean Art Journey


Koryo Studio is the first Western art gallery to specialize in DPRK art. Our goal has always been to commission work, rather than simply buy from art studios. North Korean artists work to a brief set by Koryo Studio founder Nicholas Bonner. Therefore, this differs from the mundane and repetitive themed works their studios dictate.
