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 – not because of any agreement with the content, sentiment, or political message.

The works were produced prior to 2015, and there is no connection whatsoever between these works or the artists with any sanctioned entity.  As the originial artist is recorded only on official records (or on the print run details) we list the artist as ‘not recorded’ and emboss the giclée scans with the Koryo Studio seal for authenticity. The edition is numbered in pencil.

We do not see these works as ‘fine art’, but rather as graphics which will appeal to those interested in North Korea and the propaganda art form itself. It was a difficult project to commission because of restrictions from the DPRK side, and then later all production ceased because of UN Sanctions. Due to this, the pieces now have a certain rarity about them.

Please understand that as they are copy works produced by North Korean artists and should be treated as pieces for display rather than as investments. We have a number of hand painted pieces for sale- please contact us for details.
