Fake North Korean paintings in circulation

Son Woo Yeong Dokdo

Sunny Lee has a good article in the Korea Times: Fake NK Paintings in Wide Circulation. 9:44 AM Jan 7th.

  • Philip: Good article. Did you get to meet Sun Woo-young when writing it? He was in London a couple of years ago. I assume the paintings on show in London were authentic, as he was there in person. They were originally asking around $15k for his paintings, if I remember right, but I think the prices came down when there weren’t many takers!
  • Sunny Lee: Hi Philip: Thanks for the heads-up and link. I was told that Mr Sun died from a stroke last June.
