North Korean propaganda artist Song Byeok turns satirist
Song Byeok was once the official state propaganda artist of North Korea. He created paintings and posters celebrating the country’s revered leaders Kim Jong-Il and Kim Il-Sung. His faith in the regime was betrayed in the 1990s when famine struck North Korea. Millions of people, including Song’s father, mother, and sister, died.
