In Pyongyang this September, the South Korean President Moon Jae-in spoke to the North Koreans about reunification and how “We had lived together for 5,000 years, but apart for just 70 years…” – It’s time to walk the extra mile for Korean unification.

Artist Mina Cheon's Polipop Shop is inspired by pop artist Keith Haring's Pop Shop created in the 80s in Soho NYC but catered specifically to her "Political Pop Art" known as "Polipop." The Polipop Shop sells the artist's art objects, multiples, collectibles, novelty items, and printed materials that are created in the process of her working on larger contemporary art projects and global activism work. While the physical store is located at the Mina Cheon Studio of Baltimore, Maryland, USA, the online store exists to buyers through Etsy. The concept of the Polipop Shop is to make more of Mina Cheon's art available and accessible to people interested in her work and it is created to meet the popular demands of her art in a more affordable manner.

Mina Cheon (PhD, MFA) is a Korean-American global new media artist, scholar, and educator who divides her time between Korea and the United States. Cheon has exhibited her political pop art known as “Polipop” internationally and draws inspiration from global media and popular culture to produce work that intersects politics and pop art in evocative ways. While she creates work that range in medium from new media, video, installation, performance, and public projects to traditional media of painting and sculptures, the content of the work is in historic alignment to appropriation art and global activism art. In particular, Cheon has worked on North Korean awareness and global peace projects since 2004.

The very first Polipop Shop item is the "Global Peace Shoes" made available for order on the opening day of the store, November 1, 2018. Along with other print materials and art objects, the Polipop Shop will expand its item list and inventory as the studio production continues and that artist make more contemporary art.
