North Korea

North Korean Paintings from Mansudae Art Studio

While many think first of propaganda paintings when it comes to North Korea, the North also has a great deal of traditional paintings of the ‘misty mountain landscape’ variety so prevalent in East Asian painting. Below are a few, courtesy of Mansudae Art Studio. To learn more about Mansudae, try this story about an Italian importer of their art.

I’ll post a few of them below, but head to my Facebook page to view the complete album.
