Song Byeok once painted propaganda for the Kim regime. But after escaping from North Korea, his art now documents the plight of his people. His show Song Byeok: Longing for Freedom opens this Saturday, April 7 at the Gloria Delson Contemporary Arts in downtown LA. He stopped by to chat with KCRW's Steve Chiotakis about his art and the current state of US-North Korean relations.
