Cambodian urban art auction today in Phnom Penh

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Sun Sep 10, 2017 2:33 pm

The gallery is teaming up with Princess Ermine Norodom, who runs the foundation Shanty Town Spirit, for a charity art auction at the Sofitel hotel in Phnom Penh in which 20 pieces by 11 renowned local and foreign artists will go under the hammer.

Money raised from the event will go to Shanty Town Spirit, which works to help communities make sustainable improvements to their lives, with participating artists including FONKI, Chifumi, Peap Tarr and Theo Vallier. Works up for sale consist of a diverse assortment of styles and motifs, varying from spray-painted street murals to sculptures made from rusty metal.

Rebirth by FONKI is a very enjoyable view of the painting. I hope the artists do well for the cause. It would be good to see a follow up on this thread.
