NK News speaks to four Mansudae Artists prior to their unprecedented exhibition in London

The Mansudae Art Studio in Pyongyang is the DPRK's premier art production center and is responsible for the majority of artworks seen throughout the country, from scenic oil paintings to the country's well known socialist realist posters.

Founded in November 1959, the Mansudae Studio has over the years grown to accommodate a labor force of over 4,000 people, of which over 700 members alone today are artists.
