Cambodia’s ‘exploding’ urban art scene

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.

I have doubts about street art flourishing here especially when some VIP can say he did not approve it, and then waste money in having it repainted over... Re the White building .
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Mural artists from far and wide set to reveal talent in the capital
11 December 2018
The street art festival, which runs for four days, will feature 15 murals by 10 artists from Cambodia, France, Argentina and Spain.

Street art festival, Cambodia Urban Art, returns for its fourth edition this weekend, displaying street murals around Phnom Penh by talented young artists from around the world.

The street pieces will mainly be found in the area around the Royal Palace and in BKK1.

The open event, which is mostly free of charge and runs for four days, aims to promote street art and discover fresh talent.

“Our festival aims to develop the street art scene in Cambodia and discover young talent. Also, as it is a free entry event, the purpose is to make art accessible to all and to share as much artistic content as possible,” said

Laetitia Troussel, a member of the organising team which also includes French artist Chifimi, whose work regularly features traditional Khmer dance.

“We paint in the city but we also organise events with dance performances, live bands, video projection and live painting sessions,” Troussel added. “We like people to do art themselves, so this Saturday we will be organising a free workshop session at FCC Mansion Heritage Bar, so both the young and adults can come paint with us.”

The event will feature 15 murals by 10 artists from Cambodia, France, Argentina and Spain. Rising Cambodian artist Davido is among them. His interest in street art originated at the first event back in 2015, saying that the nature of street art means the painters’ work is on display all the time.

Hip hop training and talk, murals, giant puppet?

What is this? A day in a recently gentrified neighborhood? Sponsored by Total and Tous Les Jours? How's that urban?

It should say "Urban art creations & cultural appropriation" at the bottom instead.

The artists here tend to have their own particular style that wouldn't be mistaken for any US stuff. Don't let that put you off slamming the whole thing though Queef, we know the height of culture for you is taking selfies at Coachella. 8-)

Their own particular style derived from what's been done in the US over the past 40 years you mean? Hip Hop isn't very Cambodian, neither are murals. Why not promote the local culture instead?

The height of culture for me will never be taking selfies at Coachella. Tasteless. I'm more of a Oregon Eclipse/ Symbiosis guy :lol: :beer3:
