Pi-Pet-Pi Gallery
The Past is the Road to the Future by Chan Phuon.  “For these works are made according to the changing situation of Cambodia.   The current rich in all kinds of machines and the development of new machines in the future.  Some people who live in the modern world and are obsessed with new technologies, in part, lose their identity, which is rich in art and culture.  And those people will have to face a wandering life that does not know who they are.”

Romcheik5 Art Space
Whose Fault is it? by Chanpenh Nget.  “Throughout 15 paintings, he describes a country in chiaroscuro where the skins are coppery but the skies leaden … alternating a diversity of browns and grays, tanned skins under dark skies. In the background of his paintings, all in the semi-darkness, the weather is not nice … The sun never shines in Chanpenh’s kingdom.”
