Ex North Korean Propaganda Artist Comes to Atlanta
Ex North Korean Propaganda Artist Comes to Atlanta
Song Byeok brings works to the Goat Farm North Korean-born artist Song Byeok is making his US premier here in Atlanta. His exhibit, "Departure," features twenty paintings, including six brand new works never before seen by the public. The artist's story--he was a propaganda artist for Kim Jong-il's regime before escaping to South Korea--is just as fascinating as the work itself. WABE's Myke Johns sat down with the artist to find out more. The exhibition opens with a reception and artist lecture Friday at the Goat Farm's Rodriguez Room at 7 o'clock. The works are on display through the 26th. More details here.
