Artist Statement

​From hearing great amounts on the news about Kim Jong-un and North Korea and there “plans”. I wanted create a painting based on Kim and him as a person and that because of the world he was born in and because of who is father was he will always be narrow miinded about life outside of his own country and will never change his mind about this world because of his father and him wanting to “continue papa legado” (continue fathers legacy). I used somewhat pop culture style advertisements on the painting to get across how Kim is in almost every bit of media & culture the North Korean people get. See the movie advertisment top left. I used what looks like an advertisment for the movie planet of the apes but instead used it as metaphor for how Kim is leading his people, I also wrote “Dictated” then crossed it out and put Directed to further get across the idea of Kim’s ruling of his country. Another pop-culture reference is in the top right where I wrote “Supreme <--- new line by Kim J.U" Supreme is a popular American street wear clothing brand, and this is again showing how Kim is in almost all of North Korea's media & culture and that he is the "Supreme" leader of North Korea. Another humorous reference was changing the star in the North Korean flag to a missile, as seen on Kim Jong-un's head.
