Former North Korean propaganda artist Song Byeok, recipient of Ventura's 2018 Global Artist of distinction, was once subject to North Korea's authoritarian power. He now works to subvert it through his humiliating paintings of the Dear Leader, and satirical portraits of his devoted countrymen. Song went from a propaganda painter for the regime to a political prisoner to, now, a dissident artist. His work will be exhibited for the first time in Ventura at the Vita Art Center.

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.
