At a tense time on the Korean peninsula, defector Sun Mu is stoking controversy with his satirical works, NK News reports
It was after he fled North Korea in 1990s that artist Sun Mu decided to turn the regime’s propaganda painting style on its head. He began producing satirical works that have since been described as “Disney characters with a military aesthetic”.
After he settled in South Korea, his work became increasingly provocative, gaining attention for its ability to parody and imitate the North Korean regime’s social realist style.
