Urban Vision - Chhim Sothy

Originally from Phnom Penh, Chhim Sothy had a dramatic childhood in exile. Nevertheless, during those years, he developed a passion for drawing which still animates him even after four decades.

His talent for drawer emerged at the Royal University of Fine Arts of Phnom Penh. He learned to create, and draw whilst producing postcards and posters for a living until he joined Les Chantiers Ecoles in Siem Reap.

The 2000s mark his professional development, receiving numerous recognitions beyond the borders of his home country. He then became Director of Fine Arts at the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts. The artist plays with urban development and color with his oil paint palette, drawing shadows and lights, between traditions to figurative.

Chhim Sothy evolves whilst observing his surroundings and people. He offers a sight, between abstract and
reality, an approach to what a small town becomes once transforms into a metropole.
