Former North Korean propaganda artist Song Byeok will be honored as our Global Artist, 2018. Mr. Song, who escaped his home country in 2002 after enduring brutal torture at the hands of the regime he once worked for, is now dedicated to promoting freedom through his art that satirize oppressive regimes world-wide. He now resides in Seoul, South Korea and Frankfurt, Germany, where he makes art every day. Known as "The Andy Warhol of North Korea".

Global Arts Initiative features the work of outstanding contemporary artists who are committed to social, cultural, and political engagement. The initiative celebrates art's capacity for social change, connecting the community to artists who provide a firsthand perspective on the global issues of our times.
