The 100 paintings from more than two dozen painters include both top level people’s artists and merited artists such as North Korea’s best and most famous sketch artist, Professor Han Gyong Bo, and younger talents such as 24 year-old Han Song Il who won, among other things, first prize at a fine arts exhibition in India. The exhibition includes a representative variety of beautiful Korean style paintings, prints, watercolor paintings, pencil drawings, Korean jewel-powdered paintings and oil paintings.
Doan Huong La and her Swiss husband Felix Abt, owner of the gallery, said that North Korea had a lot of talented artists worthy of world recognition.
