Cambodian artists make waves in art world

In history, we can see Cambodia was very talented in arts and architecture. Cambodian ancestors  built many greatest temples such as: Angkor Wat the Khmer architecture and arts masterpiece, Preah Vihear temple the perfect Khmer arts and architectural masterpiece which harmonize itself  within the surrounding nature and the perfect symbol of god place…etc. In the present time, after three decades of civil wars, we have lost many things especially arts but Cambodian artist do not stay still. They have tried their hardest to revive their national arts. Their effort is  paying them back satisfactorily. A news post on BBC Asia-Pacific released yesterday talk about Cambodian contemporary arts under the title Cambodian artists make waves in art world. It is a big pride for Cambodia whose artists such as Mr. Svay Sareth, Mr. Leang Seckon, Mr. Em Riem, Mr.Pich Sopheap…. have done many great works to make a big waves in the art world.  The new generation of Cambodian artists have brought Khmer arts to the world stage and I, as a Cambodian citizen, is very very proud of them and myself to be born as Khmer.  They are becoming more globally-recognized  by their talent and outstanding art pieces. So far, I have known that some among them have their art work shown at various museums abroad like Singapore, London… For ordinary Cambodian people, the awareness of Cambodian contemporary arts is very important.  We should see, learn, and support them and also spread the news about them.

Here I would like to highlight some Cambodian contemporary arts and artists!
