On Friday 13, the latest in the Creative Generation series at Java Tuol Kork, The Blocks, an exhibition of paintings by recent Zaman University digital arts and design graduate Sun Lymei. “There were these bizarre geometrical characters walking around. I thought it was crazy yet the image was so vivid that it became an inspiration that hit me like a bee sting. I then created those artworks but dare not to show anyone since they are just blocks of colors, geometrical shapes and lines. The subjects were based entirely on what and who matters in my life so I thought that this work is meaningless; at least not to the world.” From 6.30 pm.
