Pae Pom Sun at the Korean Painting Creative Group of the Central Fine Arts Studio is called an artist of pine painting.

She is in her 30s. But she's loved and respected by people as she depicts well the strong spirit of pine, the national tree of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Originally, she majored in calligraphy.

Pae Pom Sun says:

"From olden times Korean ancestors regarded pine remaining green even in the snow as a sacred tree symbolizing the strength and soul of the country and as a strong spirit of the nation. So the Korean people have widely sung songs of pine that seems to be solemn yet strong, noble yet unchangeable, and firm yet enthusiastic. Their desire to always love the pine and live like it stoutly compelled me to create an art work of pine."

It was not easy for her to paint pictures as she had majored in calligraphy. In order to depict pine wonderfully, however, she called on elderly artists to learn and develop techniques of the Korean painting and repeated her speculation and pursuit.

Once she climbed up a steep mountain covered with snow in mid-winter so as to see with her own eyes and experience the strong spirit and appearance of the pine. Thanks to such devoted efforts, she could become an artist of pine painting.

Her works of pine were highly estimated at a number of fine art exhibitions held in the past.

Pae Pom Sun is still drawing the green pine representing the soul and spirit of the Korean nation with the uncommon pride of being an artist painting a symbol of the state.
