An exhibition in London is giving people a rare look at art from North Korea. Its embassy in London has opened its doors to the public to view work from four state-sponsored artists.

Hand picked by the State run art studio, and under close supervision, the artists spent several weeks painting London scenes, to show alongside their more traditional themes from home.

But the event, which was hoped to build a better understanding between the British and North Koreans, has drawn very little attention from the public.
